The Gas Industry's Anti-Electrification Campaigns & The Historic Nomination Of Deb Haaland
On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet series, we're discussing a new Mother Jones investigation about the gas industry’s decades long campaign to convince Americans to use gas stoves. The industry is also involved in anti-electrification campaigns across the country. Natural gas is a powerful contributor to climate change and source of air pollution.
Later in the show, we'll discuss the historic nomination of Congresswoman Deb Haaland to head the Interior Department. If confirmed, she will be the first Native to head a cabinet agency.
