Getting To Zero: Climate Activists And Public Electric Utilities
Play • 1 hr 6 min
Our multi-part series on local climate action continues with an episode dedicated to one of our country's major sources of greenhouse gas emissions - electricity. In particular, we discuss the decades of work by local activists to get Austin's publicly-owned electric utility on a path to zero emissions. There's just one problem... the Fayette Power Project, Austin's last remaining coal plant.

Guests include Kaiba White (Public Citizen Texas), Amber Mills (MOVE Texas), Annie Fierro (Sunrise Movement), and Makenna Jonker (City of Austin Electric Utility Commission).
