'BradCast' 3/28/2017: (Guest: MoJo's climate and energy reporter Rebecca Leber)
< 1 day ago
Surrounded by coal miners and industry titans, Donald Trump signed what he is calling his "Energy Independence" Executive Order, a move to try and roll back Barack Obama's climate policies and legacy. In his remarks before signing, which did not include the words 'climate change' or 'global warming' or 'wind' or 'solar' or 'renewable energy', Trump claimed the effort is meant to focus on 'job creation', even though experts agree coal jobs are highly unlikely to return, given the lower cost of cleaner-burning natural gas, as well as a renewable energy revolution with both wind and solar. Mother Jones' climate and energy reporter Rebecca Leber joins us on today's show to explain the details of Trump's order and the difficulties he is likely to encounter trying to implement much of it, including rolling back regulations that took years to enact, and some of the court rulings and legislation that they are meant to respond to. Also today: Now that the GOP's plan to 'repeal and replace' the Affordable Care Act ('ObamaCare') has gone down in flames (for now), the Kansas state legislature has voted by large numbers in both chambers to expand Medicaid under the ACA. But will the state's far-right wing Gov. Sam Brownback sign the bill to help some 180,000 poor Kansans obtain access to health care?

More than just the radio version of the Brad Blog
It's one of the most informative, investigative and entertaining shows on radio or the Internet. Brad Friedman and Desi Doyen are my heroes. Their show ranks up there with Ian Master's Background Briefing.
