Political Climate is back after a four-month hiatus. Did we miss anything?

Well, there was the Democrats' Green New Deal resolution and launch of the new House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. There was also the introduction of a Republican-backed clean energy plan and the kickoff of a climate-centric presidential election. So there’s that.

Overall, there's been an increasing amount of climate policy action on both sides of the aisle. Are both parties narrowing in on a viable U.S. climate agenda? Or are they getting further apart?

In this episode, the Political Climate co-hosts catch up on the latest headlines. Plus, the podcast makes some news of its own!
