Sonia Shah's new book The Next Great Migration is an essential read for the climate movement. What are most people missing when it comes to migration across the globe? Shah discusses the common misconceptions, where it originated, and the awful history of many environmental leaders promoting xenophobia and ecofascism.

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss the Texas winter weather emergencies, renewable energy myths in a crisis, and how the most energy insecure are being impacted.
