Progressives are trying hard to push the Democratic Party to the left, as part of a Summer For Progress campaign. On today’s show we’ll speak with Erika Andiola, Political Director of Our Revolution, to find out what the People’s Platform is that her group wants the supposedly liberal party to back. Then, as California extends its cap-and-trade program to 2030 hailing it as a major climate victory, some environmental groups see it as a disaster for the climate. Adam Scow of Food and Water Watch will join us to explain why requiring polluters to pay does not actually help the climate. Finally, long time consumer advocate, political activist, and multiple presidential candidate Ralph Nader will join us to discuss his new book, Breaking Through Power: Its Easier Than We Think.
