Climate Conflicts

It’s the mother of all Grand Bargains: Governor Brown is doing shuttle diplomacy between oil companies, developers, trade unions, environmental groups, and affordable housing advocates to pass a growing package of bills before the legislature goes on recess. We tackle the climate deal, and look at why it’s drawing fire from some environmental groups. Plus: when will floodwaters reach where you live? We talk to the climate scientist who is answering that question block by block.

Guests: 

7:21 Michael Wara, associate professor at Stanford Law, and a faculty affiliate at the Woods Institute on the Environment.

7:44 Kristina Dahl, climate scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and co-author of the report When Rising Seas Hit Home, and the interactive maps that accompany it.
