This week, Kate Aronoff, staff writer at The New Republic and author of the new book, Overheated: How Capitalism Broke the Planet- And How We Fight Back, joins the show to discuss neoliberalism’s influence over bad climate policy and how America can combat the climate crisis best by building a more democratic society that benefits the lives of everyone. We also talk about how a Green New Deal can create a just transition that helps build a larger, stronger coalition for Democrats.
