Rebecca Leber: A Green New Infrastructure Deal?

Infrastructure is sort of the unsung hero of a functioning society. It’s hard to get across town without a reliable road, hard to keep people healthy without clean drinking water, hard to fight climate change without ready renewable energy sources, and hard to right historical wrongs without accessible transit systems that support greater equity.┬áThis week on Sea Change Radio, we take a deep dive into the Biden Administration’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure bill with environmental journalist Rebecca Leber. We break down the bill’s significant climate and energy-related policies, look at the politics surrounding it, and discuss whether the proposal should be considered part of Green New Deal legislation.
