Asking journalists to "connect the dots," between fossil fuels and synthetic products. Says something like you cant "have people worried about climate over here, and people worried about plastics over here."
I just asked former EPA head Gina McCarthy what she makes of deal to give up EPA power to regulate CO2 in exchange for a carbon tax and dividend. Her answer: "Clearly not a fair trade and clearly not sufficient." #ONA19 #ONA19climate
She observes that coal power plants are "so yesterday."
She's challenging reporters to address climate as a public health issue, get away from strictly "environmental" framing.
