Connections: What's in the new infrastructure bill for climate action?
What's in the new infrastructure bill for climate action? Depending on who you ask, the bill was either a monumental failure or a building block for successful climate action. The global climate movement has made strides, but it has not yet produced the kind of coalition that can achieve the most ambitious goals.
We discuss what's in the bill, and we talk about why movements succeed or fail. Our guests:
- Sue Hughes Smith, elected last week to the Monroe County Legislature, vice chair of Monroe County's Climate Action Plan Advisory Committee, and member of Roctricity
- Lola DeAscentiis, senior at Mercy High School, and member of the New York Youth Climate Leaders
