    Forging US-Canadian Partnerships On Climate

    Forging US-Canadian Partnerships On Climate

    How can the US and Canada cooperate to meet international and domestic climate targets? 
    To try and answer that question, host Jason Bordoff spoke with Catherine McKenna – the former Canadian Minister of Infrastructure and Communities and former Canadian Minister of Environment and Climate Change. 
    McKenna, who recently joined the Center on Global Energy Policy as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow, was a lead negotiator of the Paris Agreement before introducing and successfully defending landmark legislation that established a carbon price across Canada. 
    In this conversation, the pair discuss Canada’s decarbonization strategy, misogyny in climate politics, building US-Canadian partnerships in tackling climate change, and her hopes for this new, exciting stage in her career.

    Fossil Fuel Giants and the Clean Transition

    Fossil Fuel Giants and the Clean Transition

    Accelerating a global clean energy transition has never been more vital to curbing the worst impacts of climate change, but greenhouse gas emissions and the use of hydrocarbons continues to rise. 
    And even as several global fossil fuel giants announce clean energy initiatives, net zero timelines, and carbon capture projects, they continue to invest in oil and gas. 
    For a closer look at the role that legacy fossil fuel companies can and should play in the clean energy transition moving forward, Host Jason Bordoff spoke with Laszlo Varro — Vice President of Global Business Environment at Shell. 
    Before taking this position, he spent a decade at the IEA as Head of Gas, Coal and Electricity Markets and then as the organization’s Chief Economist. 
    They spoke about his take on the IEA’s outlook on the transition, natural gas as a bridge fuel and how traditional oil companies like Shell are responding to growing consumer demand for a clean transition.

    Looking Back On A Changing Planet

    Looking Back On A Changing Planet

    The ongoing pandemic and a rocky White House transition overshadowed many other pressing events in the United States and abroad. 
    Nevertheless, the threats of a changing planet persisted.
    2021 included a dire report from the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change, a new round of international climate negotiations and climate-fueled fires, floods and hurricanes. 
    In this episode, Host Bill Loveless sits down to recap the last year in climate and energy policy news and look ahead to 2022 with two climate reporters: Lisa Friedman and Justin Worland. 
    Lisa is a Climate Desk Reporter with the New York Times, and Justin is a climate reporter with TIME magazine. 
    Given their areas of coverage, the conversation focused on the United States.

    “The Fight For Climate After COVID-19”

    “The Fight For Climate After COVID-19”

    It seems that the coronavirus pandemic is here to stay as the newly-discovered Omicron variant of the virus spreads throughout the globe. 
    But climate change continues to be a threat too, as the impacts become more severe and the window for action narrows. 
    In this episode, Host Bill Loveless speaks with someone who has experience working on biological threats like pandemics as well as climate change.
    Alice Hill is the David M. Rubenstein Senior Fellow for energy and the environment at the Council on Foreign Relations. She previously served as Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and Senior Director for Resilience Policy on the National Security Council.
    The pair discussed her newest book “The Fight For Climate After COVID-19,” a treasure trove of insights on how we can use what we’ve learned from tackling COVID to build a climate resilient future.

    Lessons from a Canadian Hydropower Company

    Lessons from a Canadian Hydropower Company

    Hydropower is one of our oldest sources of renewable energy. In 2018, hydropower made up nearly 60% of Canada’s electricity generation. In provinces like Quebec and Manitoba, hydropower makes up well over 90% of the provincial electricity supply. 
    One Canadian power company is looking to expand and provide hydroelectricity to its neighbors down south.
    In this episode, host Bill Loveless sits down with Sophie Brochu, the President and CEO of Hydro-Québec, a Canadian state-owned utility and the fourth-largest producer of hydropower in the world.
    Brochu is currently leading new efforts to expand Hydro-Québec’s reach and bring low-carbon electricity to the United States through new transmission lines in the Northeast.
    But, the company is facing pushback from local groups on how and where these new transmission lines should be built. 
    Bill spoke with Sophie about those criticisms, the future of fossil fuel companies, and her vision for distributing and generating clean electricity throughout North America.

    The Future of Climate Diplomacy

    The Future of Climate Diplomacy

    It’s been a month since world climate leaders convened in Glasgow, Scotland for international climate talks. 
    The conference brought meaningful advances to halt deforestation, curb methane emissions, and deploy clean energy. It also kept the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 C alive. 
    But closing the gap between ambition and reality will require herculean efforts from all countries, particularly western nations which are responsible for a majority of historical CO2 emissions. 
    To talk through the challenges that lie ahead, Host Jason Bordoff spoke with Laurence Tubiana.
    Tubiana is the CEO of the European Climate Foundation. A key architect of the Paris Climate Accords, She has championed international climate diplomacy in her roles as France’s Climate Change Ambassador and as a Special Representative at COP21 in Paris. 
    In this interview, Tubiana offers an insider’s perspective on the outcomes at Glasgow, and what’s needed from governments and financial institutions over the coming years.
