June 11, 2019: Ramez Naam on the Green New Deal, Pt. 2 + Sunscreen Bans
If you’ve been wondering what people mean when they talk about a Green New Deal, today’s episode of Sea Change Radio should help. This week we air the second half of our discussion with technologist Ramez Naam. Last week Naam shared some of the specifics of the Green New Deal. This we talk about the best way to pitch any plan to the American public, whether a measure for restricting individual consumption ought to be included in the plan, and the importance of considering vulnerable populations around the globe when crafting sound climate policy. Then, with summer kicking off, we revisit our conversation with Craig Downs of the Haereticus Institute, to learn about which sunscreen ingredients to avoid and which are safe for fragile marine ecosystems.
