Soundbites: The Peoples Climate March & Renewable Energy In Maryland

climateApril 13, 2017 – Segment 2

We hosted the newest edition of our series on our food and our world, Sound Bites. We continued our countdown to the Peoples Climate March, taking place in DC on April 29. We talked about what renewable energy means for the country under Trump as well as for Maryland, specifically. Can Maryland become a hub for renewable energy and can the nation continue to progress towards renewable energy under Donald Trump?

We talked with: Daphne Wysham, Director of the Climate and Energy Program at the Center for Sustainable Economy; and Janet Redman, US Policy Director with Oil Change International and Associate Fellow with the Climate Policy Program at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC.
We also talked with Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research. Most recently, Dr, Makhijani wrote Carbon-Free and Nuclear-Free: A Roadmap for U.S. Energy Policy, the first analysis of a transition to a U.S. economy based completely on renewable energy without any use of fossil fuels or nuclear power.
