This week on Hubwonk, host Joe Selvaggi talks to Prof. Roger Pielke, Jr., Professor of Climate Science at the University of Colorado, about the widening gap between the catastrophic predictions proffered at the COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, and the less dire observations contained in the UN’s own recent IPCC report.

Guest:

GOP Rep. John Curtis of Utah, chairman of the Conservative Climate Caucus, joins “Plugged In” hosts Josh Siegel and Neil Chatterjee.

Curtis shares details on why he is joining a delegation of House Republicans visiting a major U.N. climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, the top Republican on the EPW Committee, joins “Plugged In” hosts Josh Siegel and Neil Chatterjee to talk about all things CEPP, coal, COP26, and climate change.

Capito predicts that Democrats can find a way to get her West Virginia colleague, Sen. Joe Manchin, to say “yes” on the CEPP program by being more lenient to natural gas. She also warns Democrats’ clean electricity performance program would accelerate the energy transition too fast, and eliminate coal in the state.
