Hope in the Fight for Sustainability

with Joel Cesare and Owen Barrett,

Podcast Hosts, Rayven

In this episode of the Climate Rebels Podcast, Joel and Owen fly solo without a guest and talk about trending topics in the climate and sustainability space. During the show, Joel and Owen talk about the importance of using simple messaging and sticking to it as constantly changing buzzwords create confusion, how the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will continue to impact the climate conversation, the conversion of a coal plant to a solar farm in Kentucky, why sustainability doesn’t need to be an us vs them discussion, and more.
