On the next Your Call’s One Planet Series, we discuss the Democratic Party's $739 billion Inflation Reduction Act.

It includes $370 billion in tax incentives and other support for renewable energy, a 10-year extension of tax credits for wind and solar, and $60 billion for environmental justice measures. It also includes unprecedented support for new drilling, which has divided many in the environmental community.

Guest:

Marianne Lavelle, award winning reporter for Inside Climate News
