President Biden’s plans for curbing the most devastating impacts of a changing climate are ambitious.
His administration is not only planning a sharp U-turn from the previous White House — former President Donald Trump openly mocked the science behind human-caused climate change — but those aims go even further than the Obama administration’s.
Today, we look at the Biden administration’s environmental proposals, as well as the potential roadblocks and whether these changes can last.
Guest: Coral Davenport, an energy and environmental policy reporter for The New York Times.
