Thanks to the Supreme Court, Will There Be a Liveable Planet in Our Children and Grandchildren’s Future?
We begin with the latest blow from the Supreme Court, this time on whether we have a liveable planet in the future and what kind of life awaits our children and grandchildren as global warming and climate change already is ravaging our planet and threatening worse to come. Joining us is Michael Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute. He contributed, with other IPCC authors, to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and in 2020 was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and his latest book is The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet.
As Electrical Generators Move Away From Coal, SCOTUS Turns Back the Clock
Then, with Joe Manchin, Charles Koch and the remaining coal barons celebrating the Supreme Court’s ruling in West Virginia versus the EPA, we will go to West Virginia and speak with James Van Nostrand, Director of the Center for Energy and Sustainable Development and a Professor of Law at West Virginia University College of Law. We discuss how the electrical generating companies in the country are already moving away from coal and how this reactionary ruling against the EPA will not stop that trend but will hamstring the government’s ability to address the larger issue of climate change and global warming.
