Leah Stokes is a political science professor and climate researcher who has spent decades working not just on the nitty gritty of climate policy, but also on the political forces that stop climate change legislation from becoming reality. We chatted with her about her take on the Biden climate plan, why utilities and fossil fuel companies aren't innovating on their own, and what private companies like Google are doing currently to address climate change.
Check out Leah's new book, Short Circuiting Policy! She also has an essay coming out in a new book on September 22. You can pre-order that book -- All We Can Save -- now.
