This is the first of two episodes in which we look at clean energy advocacy and politics from different political points of view. In today's show I sit down with Charles Hernick, Director of Policy and Advocacy at CRES Forum and its political arm, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, for the conservative perspective.

We begin the conversation with Charles explaining CRES Forum's goal and mission. Charles then discusses CRES Forum's National Clean Energy Week initiative, what it's all about and how people can get involved. We then switch gears and get more into the politics of clean energy, including how CRES engages with conservative candidates and how it frames the conservative message for supporting clean energy policies.
