State legislatures around the country have a major impact on climate policy, yet state-level political races often fail to garner much attention. Caroline Spears says that needs to change.
Caroline created Climate Cabinet Action to help state leaders develop strong platforms and communication strategies that embrace climate as a priority. Recently, the group published a Climate Cabinet Scorecard, the first national tool to hold state legislators accountable for their climate votes.
On this episode of Political Climate, our hosts speak with Caroline Spears about the scorecard and how voters and donors can help candidates run, win and legislate on the climate crisis.
