#5: Is climate action worth getting kicked out of Congress?

In Episode 5, Quinn and Brian conclude (for now!) their conversations with conservative climate activists, asking: Is climate action worth getting kicked out of Congress?

Uniquely qualified to answer is former Congressperson Bob Inglis of South Carolina.

Bob’s the founder of RepublicEN.org, a small government, free-enterprise, "we need to save the world" climate action group. Hear how he’s trying to move the (very heavy) GOP needle, and what could possibly persuade current conservatives to risk their seat to save the planet. 

Also discussed: sailing, Brian running a marathon vs. Bob, ill-timed construction, and angry juice cleanses.

#4: What does the bible say about climate change?

In Episode 4, Quinn and Brian continue with the second in their "trilogy" of conversations with conservative climate activists, and ask: What does the bible say about climate change?

Here to answer: Reverend Mitch Hescox of the Environmental Evangelical Movement.

Descended from generations of coal miners, Mitch helps us understand our role — or lack of one — in helping the religious right become green advocates. Because nobody wants the Sierra Club yelling at them all the time. Not even us.

#3: A professional climate denier changes his mind

In Episode 3, Quinn and Brian host the first of three conversations with conservative climate activists. In the first, a professional climate denier changes his mind.

Meet Jerry Taylor, former professional climate denier-turned-good guy. Like Darth Vader, or The Terminator, or Severus Snape. Anyways.

We discuss the moment Jerry knew he was wrong, and his ambitious plan to drag Republicans into sensible action — action they should actually be excited about, because it means throwing all of the sissy liberal regulations right out the window.

Also don’t miss: details on Jerry’s award-winning board games. FOR REAL.
