This Moment in Climate with Michael Mann and Leah Stokes
Climate change was a leading issue for more voters in 2020 than any other election year. With a promising new pro-science, pro-climate action administration coming in 2021, there are more pathways — and far greater political will — than ever before to transition to a clean energy economy.
Now, the question is less about what can be done to act on climate, and more about how soon. How quickly can a new administration turn around a gutted EPA, myriad environmental law rollbacks, and a legacy of climate denial from fossil fuel companies? What are the key tools and actions the Biden administration can take to address the urgency of the climate crisis?
Join us for a conversation on climate breaking through in 2021 with Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University and author of The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet, and Leah Stokes, assistant professor of political science at UC Santa Barbara and author of Short Circuiting Policy: Interest Groups and the Battle Over Clean Energy and Climate Policy in the American States.
