With the Green New Deal in the national spotlight, a vigorous debate is happening: how ambitiously and broadly must the U.S. act on climate? Are issues like economic equity, job security and public health outside the frame of climate action — or fundamental to its success?

Progressive Democrats contend a holistic solution would tackle all of the above. Critics such as former Congressman Barney Frank argue that society can only handle so much change at once. How bold does action need to be to avoid the worst impacts of climate change — and at what cost to citizens? Are environmental justice and human health central to the success of the climate action, or just a nice bonus? How can policy and innovation work together to decarbonize the economy?

Join us for a special recording of the Climate One podcast and radio show at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, featuring Harvard's John Holdren and Gina McCarthy and hosted by Greg Dalton.

Guests:

John Holdren, Theresa and John Heinz Professor of Environmental Policy, Harvard Kennedy School; Former Science Advisor to President Obama

Gina McCarthy, Director of the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment (C-CHANGE), Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health; Former Administrator, U.S. EPA
