Description 

Can the far right and far left come together on clean energy despite the polarization in Washington DC? 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 think the Koch brothers and electric monopolies are restricting individual choice to protect their profits and the environment. And they all agree that climate change is a real concern that needs to be addressed.

Join Climate One as we go on the road to Washington DC on the day of the People's Climate March.
