The Fight For Climate After COVID-19

Guest

Alice Hill

Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations

It seems that the coronavirus pandemic is here to stay as the newly-discovered Omicron variant of the virus spreads throughout the globe. 

But climate change continues to be a threat too, as the impacts become more severe and the window for action narrows. 

In this episode, Host Bill Loveless speaks with someone who has experience working on biological threats like pandemics as well as climate change.

Alice Hill is the David M. Rubenstein Senior Fellow for energy and the environment at the Council on Foreign Relations. She previously served as Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and Senior Director for Resilience Policy on the National Security Council.

The pair discussed her newest book “The Fight For Climate After COVID-19,” a treasure trove of insights on how we can use what we’ve learned from tackling COVID to build a climate resilient future.
