This week, we look back on the winter weather disaster in Texas and assess the lessons moving forward: how do we properly adapt to a changing climate that's affecting our winters? Dr. Gabriel Filippelli, Professor of Earth Sciences at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, explains why winter weather is getting weirder and American Clean Power CEO Heather Zichal discusses the accelerated need for more clean energy to combat the crisis.

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss America officially re-entering the Paris Agreement, partisan motivation behind renewable opposition, and natural gas nonsense.
