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


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
