How to get Conservatives to back clean energy

President Biden has emerged from his Covid isolation and traveled to Kentucky today to visit families hit by catastrophic flooding. This isn’t the first time he’s traveled to sites hit by extreme weather, but it is the first time he’ll be able to tell the people that Washington is about to make its biggest investment ever to tackle rising temperatures. The senate this weekend passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which tackles everything from healthcare to climate, and if it passes the House, it could be on Biden’s desk by the end of the week. Former Republican Congressman Bob Inglis now works to get more conservatives to support green energy and joins the show from South Carolina. 

Also on the show: climate scientist Friederike Otto; journalist and author John Sweeney (Killer in the Kremlin); NASA administrator Bill Nelson.
