The tides are changing when it comes to how we’re thinking about climate change. Something strange happened in late 2018, when Americans—responding to a series of extreme weather events, a damning government report on global temperature rise, and excitement around the Green New Deal—experienced a surge in awareness, and fear, about climate change. That awareness has ushered in a renewed grassroots energy, led in large part by young Americans concerned about the future of the planet and their own futures within it. This week, Robinson Meyer, a climate reporter for The Atlantic, and Christy Goldfuss, CAP’s senior vice president for Energy and Environment Policy, join the pod to discuss the new politics of climate change and our current era of action.
