Congressman Mike Levin is one of the leading voices on climate policy in the U.S. Congress. He serves on the House Committee on Natural Resources as well as the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, and in this episode, he talks about the findings from the latest UN climate report, the climate provisions he would like to see in the proposed $3.5 trillion dollar budget reconciliation package, and what other government agencies can do to help address the climate crisis.
Congressman Levin references “Macroeconomic Consequences of the Infrastructure and Budget Reconciliation Plans” from Moody’s Analytics. That analysis is available here: macroeconomic-consequences-infrastructure.pdf (moodysanalytics.com)
