One Planet: Joe Biden's $2T Climate Plan & The Legal Battles Over Oil Pipelines
On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're discussing Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s $2 trillion climate plan, which includes earmarking 40 percent of clean energy investments in front-line communities. It would also establish the first office of environmental and climate justice at the Justice Department.
Later in the show, we'll discuss the recent rulings ordering major oil and gas pipeline projects to shut down, including the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline.
