S3 Ep 9: Energy Combat w/ Dr. Leah Stokes

Energy Combat requires a hand-to-hand fight with policymakers and interest groups who have persuaded the passing of laws that benefit corporations and disengage communities most affected. Dr. Leah Stokes, Assistant Professor at the University of California, Santa Barabara, discusses with RevYearwood her book “Short-Circuiting Policy”. She shares the tactics that Fossil Fuels companies use over the years, from graduating from Climate Denial to now Climate Delay and even hiring actors to protest in support of the companies taking land from our neighborhoods.  We must realize that both the Green Energy and Fossil Fuels companies cannot both have their way, and Dr. Stokes gives us a game plan to combat these tactics.
