Rolling Stone's Jeff Goodell Shares Insights Into Obama's Climate Strategy
The Green Divas Radio Show spoke with Rolling Stone's Jeff Goodell, author of Big Coal: The Dirty Secret Behind America's Energy Future. Goodell, who Green Diva Meg calls a "rock star" award-winning journalist, traveled with President Obama when he visited Alaska in September to highlight the impacts of climate change in the state. While there, Goodell did an exclusive interview with President Obama.
Goodell explains what it was like to speak one-on-one with the Presiden and says that President Obama came the closest he's ever come to "using apocalyptic rhetoric" in talking about climate change. Goodell talks about President Obama's decision to approve drilling in the Arctic despite fierce opposition from environmental groups and Shell's recent decision to halt its drilling operations.
