Session: A Matter of Degrees: Tracking the Biden Administration on Climate Change

11 a.m. Friday, May 7

This session will be a podcast recording for A Matter of Degrees podcast, with hosts Dr. Katharine WilkinsonDr. Leah Stokes and guest Julian Brave Noisecat.


The new administration has promised to take bold action to combat climate change and shift to a greener economy. This will require bold moves pulling many levers of the public and pushing the private sector. Appointing former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry to a new cabinet post as Presidential Envoy for Climate, and making history appointing Deb Halaand as Secretary if the Interior, signaled an apparent seriousness with which they’ll approach this issue. After the first 100 days, we’ll evaluate how far they’ve come and where they appear to be going.
