Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Rep. Sean Casten, Democrat of Illinois and darling of “energy Twitter,” joins “Plugged In” hosts Josh Siegel and Neil Chatterjee to talk about Hot FERC summer, the potential death of CEPP, the limits of a carbon tax and his shiny white teeth.
Casten warns any move to weaken or remove Democrats’ clean electricity performance program would be tantamount to not giving a “rat’s a** about climate.” He tells us he’s doubtful on the prospects of carbon pricing as a backup plan. He also goes deep on FERC wonkery.
