Ep. 92: How Do We Talk Effectively About Climate Change in Washington?

This week, we convene a panel to discuss how we can talk more effectively about the issue of climate change in Washington. We break down what went right and ultimately wrong with Initiative 1631, we talk about the parameters of the newly introduced Green New Deal, and we explore how to convey the urgency of what is one of the most pressing issues of our time.

Our panel:
– Aseem Prakash, Professor with the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington and Founding Director of the UW Center for Environmental Politics
– Steven Karceski, Ph.D. candidate in Sociology and graduate fellow at the UW Center for Environmental Politics
– Ashley Ahearn, a public media journalist who has covered science and the environment for NPR for more than a decade, and most recently was the host and producer of the environmental podcast, terrestrial.

In the second half of the show, we have our weekly calls to action with Indivisible WA 8 research team leader, Stephen Wilhelm.
