BEST OF 2018: He’s Given 200+ Climate Speeches to Congress. What’s Next?
Back in Episode 26, Quinn & Brian asked: what drives a man to give 200 climate speeches to Congress?
Our guest was Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, the junior senator from Rhode Island and all-around stellar human. He’s been a member of Congress since 2007 and he was just sworn in for his 3rd term – plus, he’s recently been moonlighting as some sort of Captain Planet figure.
We discuss his speeches, his future carbon bill, bi-partisanship, calling bullshit when we see it, Rhode Island’s fossil-fuel lawsuit, and so much more.
