About our guests:
Since 2009, Jeff Merkley (D-OR) has been one of the Senate’s foremost champions for protecting our environment and taking on climate change. He’s won bipartisan support to boost the Green Climate Fund, has used his seat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to promote American climate leadership on the global stage, and has led the fight in the Senate against Arctic drilling. And earlier this month, Senator Merkley introduced the Keep It in the Ground Act of 2021 to completely end new fossil fuel leases on our federal lands and waters.
