Columbia University's Director of the Center for Global Energy Policy Jason Bordoff Shapes the Future of Climate Politics

Happy Democracy Day in the United States! There's no one we'd rather have on the pod today to help us make sense of the marriage between climate and policy than our guest, Jason Bordoff. Jason founded the Center for Global Energy Policy at Columbia University after a tenure as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Energy and Climate Change on the Staff of the National Security Council, and, prior to that, holding senior policy positions on the White House's National Economic Council and Council on Environmental Quality. So yeah, he's the guy who can help us make sense of the kaleidoscope that is contemporary climate politics. 

How will government support innovation in the start up community. What policy has the best chance of fostering the change in energy policy we need in order to stay below the 1.5 degrees threshold? How will a new administration allocate the political capital it needs to get that ambitious policy agenda through congress, and if it does, what will happen when it's tested by a staunchly conservative judicial Supreme Court?  

After we cover those light topics, we turn to a vision for the future. What does a sustainable world look like, and how will government help us get there? Immensely grateful to Jason for joining us on this most consequential of days. And if you haven't gotten enough, check out his Podcast, Columbia Energy Exchange!
