SmartBrief

The Leaders Summit on Climate that was organized by the Biden administration just wrapped up a few hours ago. And since that virtual gathering was convened to tackle the climate emergency, we thought we’d respond by convening an emergency podcast!

This episode features a conversation with Justin Gerdes, senior correspondent for Energy Monitor, breaking down the key takeaways from the summit. We talk about all the emissions reduction targets (6:01), decarbonizing the transportation sector (8:30) and some of the memorable appearances at the summit, including Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm (13:14), Lonnie Stephenson from IBEW (11:55) and Xiye Bastida of Fridays for Future (19:36). We also tackle complaints arising about the temporary nature of energy transition jobs (13:44).  And yes, we even discuss the prospect of President Joe Biden driving an electric bus from Proterra (11:57) and (21:05).
