What’s Next for Climate Policy?

Wondering what’s going on with the climate bill? Come back here at 7 p.m. EST tonight for a live video feed from a panel on that subject hosted by Planet Forward at The George Washington University. The event will feature Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa P. Jackson as the headliner.

I will also be participating in a panel discussion of the subject, along with Andy Revkin of the New York Times, Jim Connaughton of Constellation Energy Group and the former head of the Council on Environmental Quality under George W. Bush, Dr. Dan Lashof of the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Ana Unruh-Cohen of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. Frank Sesno, a former CNN anchor and director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington University, will moderate.

If you live in Washington, D.C. you should come by. If not, you can come back here to watch the event live at 7. We’ll also be live-Tweeting the event here.

More MotherJones reporting on Climate Desk


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
