The New Political Climate


Climate One

Published on May 4, 2017

Climate One went on the road to Washington D.C. on the day of the People’s Climate March to find out if the far right and far left could come together on clean energy despite the polarization in the nation’s capital.

As a founding member of the Tea Party Movement, Debbie Dooley believes in the conservative principles of competitive markets and personal liberty. As leader of the grassroots organization 350.org, May Boeve uses different language and has a different view of the role of government. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) joined the Senate when climate change was still a bipartisan issue, and thinks the impetus to partisanship today began with Citizens United.

Coming from different places, all three agree that climate change is a real concern that needs to be addressed.
