Trump's EPA is replacing Obama's major climate rule with a weaker one. Does it change the market for coal or renewables? 

In this episode of The Energy Gang, we'll look at the details, the legal challenges and the industry impact. 

Then, we'll discuss the growing red-blue climate divide. States are putting ambitious new climate plans in place, but they’re almost all in states dominated by democrats. The new EPA power plant rule only makes that gap bigger. What are the long-term consequences for the red states failing to change?

Finally, we got 15 minutes of climate talk in the first two Democratic presidential debates. Does this yet again prove why we need a climate-only debate?
