77. U.S. Election Special: A New Optimism with Ben Rhodes and Todd Stern

The US election winner has all but been formally declared, with Joe Biden on the cusp of electoral victory.

This week we talk with two experts with first hand experience in US climate policy. Ben Rhodes, former Deputy National Security Advisor for President Obama, and Todd Stern, who was the United States Special Envoy for Climate Change leading up to the Paris Agreement.
