Episode Info: In this episode, we talk climate policy! Specifically, we talk about a bipartisan carbon fee and dividend bill that was introduced in the House of Representatives last month.  ("But Hope and Ana, what about batteries?" Why do you think we got into batteries in the first place if not for their implications re: climate change? :( Ok no but for real, carbon fee --> fossil fuels less economically viable in the future --> solar/wind power MORE economically viable in the future --> energy storage Very Needed And Wanted --> more funding for battery research, probably!) Part 1 covers the basics of the bill! Impress your friends with your knowledge of its agricultural exemptions, its basis in IPCC findings, its special prescription for fluorinated greenhouse gases, and more! (And then tune in next time for the economic effect of the dividend, our takes on how this would interact with a Green New Deal, and, you guessed it, MORE) Sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAfWTppsc2w - The Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act Legislative Details from Citizens Climate University, and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqrqfpXjOTE - additional Q&A enhanced oil recovery: https://www.energy.gov/fe/science-innovation/oil-gas-research/enhanced-oil-recovery Bill text: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/7173/text
