The death in the Senate of the Kerry-Lieberman climate bill this week, Charles Komanoff argues, "clears the way for genuine solutions to global warming­­—solutions that ordinary Americans can understand and support." But many others, including David Roberts of Grist.org, say that no climate bill will pass while certain structural roadblocks remain: chief among them, the need for a 60-vote supermajority in the Senate. Could better policies rally enough public support to defeat the massive special interests allied against climate legislation? Or do we need to face facts and defeat the filibuster before we can get any legislation through at all? Komanoff and Roberts join us to debate the best way forward for the environmental movement--and for all progressives who want to see good bills become law. Distributed by Tubemogul.
