Energy and Environment Policy & the US Interior Department

Guest

Sally Jewell

US Secretary of the Interior

Among the most important federal agencies assisting President Obama’s energy and environment agenda has been the Department of Interior, which manages one-fifth of the nation’s lands and has a critical role to play in energy and climate issues. Host Jason Bordoff sits down with U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, in front of a live audience to discuss President Obama’s energy and environment legacy, as well as the Interior’s new report and guidance on coal leasing and how it will withstand a new administration, shifts in energy consumption and effects on local communities, offshore Arctic drilling, environmental activism and how to balance the need to produce resources while simultaneously addressing climate change, and the role of oil and gas in a low carbon transition.
