This week, Sean McElwee, Co-founder and Executive Director of Data for Progress, joins the show to discuss how the political landscape is changing to affect climate issues. How should Democrats talk about fracking? How do we pass progressive climate legislation? What are the biggest political shifts in climate? We dig into it all.

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss the better presidential debate questions on climate, the distorted debate coverage on oil, and turning Texas blue.
