Joe Manchin's Conflict of Interest

The oil & fossil fuel Industry showers Manchin with cash so a rapid move away from coal and other fossil fuels would likely have a negative financial impact on Manchin and his family. So why do we expect him to help with the transition away from oil, coal or fossil fuels?

Judd Legum joins Thom Hartmann to talk about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which explains that there is no safe amount of carbon emissions, and the dangers of politicians in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry.

Can we ever free ourselves from climate change if corporations can stop us from addressing it through electoral and legal channels? Judd Legum is the founder of popular.info and a journalist.
