Carlos Curbelo, Former U.S. Representative (R-FL) Ryan Costello, Former U.S. Representative (R-PA) Greg Dalton, Founder and Host, Climate One Is there hope for bipartisan progress with the Green New Deal shaking up climate politics in Washington, D.C.? Championed by Democratic U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and U.S. Senator Edward Markey (D-MA), the bill's ambitious clean energy goals are backed by prominent Democratic support but are criticized by Republican leaders for being costly and too broad. A move by Republicans to bring the Green New Deal to an immediate vote is evidence that the politics of energy are entering a new chapter. When it comes to climate politics, is there hope for bipartisan solutions that are both practical and profound enough to address the scale of the problem? We'll hear from U.S. Representative Carlos Curbelo, co-founder of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in Congress, who introduced a carbon tax bill in 2018; and former caucus member Ryan Costello, who now manages the political advocacy group Americans for Carbon Dividends, funded in part by oil companies.
