Kate Aronoff (@KateAronoff), staff writer at The New Republic, joins us to discuss her latest piece, "Joe Biden’s Sketchy Climate Record." Joe Biden has attempted to take undeserved credit for the Paris Climate Agreement, but that's only the beginning of his spotty record. Rather than the total transformation of the economy that's needed, Biden still favors the Obama admin's "all of the above" strategy, which leans on tax credits and the private sector to develop green energy, rather than placing limits on extraction.
Michael on the weaponization of corruption against left governments.
