Envisioning a Just Transition


Dr. Robert Bullard

Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy, TSU

The fight for climate justice in America presses on with signs of hope after a year of spirited activism and a new president. But the process of untangling the thicket of inequities in the energy system is far from over.

Dr. Robert Bullard is one of the visionary leaders helping to make sense of this moment.

He’s known as the “Father of Environmental Justice” and has written 18 books at the intersection of racial justice and the environment.

He speaks with Host Bill Loveless about what it will take to ensure that the Biden Administration’s climate plans and appointments are infused with justice principles, including how a progressive climate agenda can reform the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
