Climate is a moral issue – the repercussions of climate will be felt by those who were not directly responsible for greenhouse gas emissions.
Speed and scale are important for addressing climate challenges, but we must keep justice at the forefront as well.
This episode of the Getting Smart Podcast is a part of our Green Schools campaign, an initiative to highlight important thinkers and activists in the movement to make schools more sustainable, more green and more mindful of our relationship with the planet.
On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Tom Vander Ark is joined by his friend and former Governor of Colorado, Bill Ritter. Bill Directs Center for the New Energy Economy, Colorado State University which works with state and federal policy makers to create clean energy policy throughout the country.

Years ago, Governor Ritter authored a book entitled, Powering Forward – What Everyone Should Know About America’s Energy Revolution, which we talk about at length on this episode.
