News Analysis: Joe Romm on Obama’s Climate Resolve
Podcast: Play in new window
In his first week in office, President Obama seemed to hit the ground running on climate change policy and support for a greener economy. But some say that while his efforts are a good first step, they’ll have to be followed up with much stronger measures to really do the job. We caught up with Joe Romm of the blog Climate Progress
for some perspective on Obama’s first week. In addition to giving an overview, Romm also talked about an important–and frightening–new study from the NOAA
that underscores the urgency of Obama’s moves.
Joe Romm worked on environmental policy under the Clinton Administration and is the author of HELL AND HIGH WATER: Global Warming, the Solution and the Politics. His blog Climate Progess is a project of the Center for American Progress.
