The U.S. approach to clean energy has seen a sharp shift since the election of Donald Trump. Not only has the new administration promised to rescind Obama-era environmental regulations to reduce carbon emissions, such as the Clean Power Plan, it has also announced its decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. What do these developments mean for the possibility of bipartisan cooperation on clean energy? Host Bill Loveless (@bill_loveless) speaks with Jay Faison, Founder and CEO of the ClearPath Foundation, about a conservative approach to clean energy, including topics such as: Differences of opinion over climate change; The possibilities for a 100% renewable energy future; President Trump's decision to leave the Paris Agreement; The future of carbon capture technology and funding.
