A Green Wave? How Climate and Clean Energy Are Playing Into the 2018 Midterms

Complete Article From the publisher.

We’ve heard a lot about the potential for a “blue wave” in this year’s midterms — but what about a green one?

We’re talking about all things climate and clean energy in the 2018 midterm election in this special episode of Political Climate, recorded live at Yale University.

It’s less than a week until voting day. So how are climate and clean energy playing into this year’s election, for both Democrats and Republicans? In this show we’ll dissect campaign ads, talk about some tight races, track fundraising and discuss key ballot initiatives.

Plus, we take a listener question on what to expect if Republicans hold onto Congress, and get Brandon and Shane’s midterm predictions.

The final word: “Vote.” 

Thank you to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication for inviting us to record the live show in New Haven this week!
