Energy and Climate Policy: A Discussion With Rep. Sean Casten
A series of extreme weather events, reports warning of the dire consequences of unmitigated carbon emissions and grassroots activism have propelled climate change to a level of importance in Congress not seen in nearly a decade. Axios Energy Reporter and inaugural EPIC Journalism Fellow Amy Harder sat down with freshman Congressman Sean Casten (D-Ill.), a former clean energy entrepreneur and scientist, and EPIC Director Michael Greenstone, during the Congressman's visit to EPIC in late May. The group discussed climate and energy policy solutions, the politics of energy and climate change, defining innovation and more in this edition of 'Off the Charts.'
