C1 Revue: Power and Population

The Red/Blue divide in American politics is really a rainbow of perspectives. And they are colored by who you are, where you live and what you believe. How does this color our discussion on the economy and the environment? Today, our guests will look at how issues of big government, population growth and the growing Hispanic vote influence our views on climate change. While Texas Governor Rick Perry maintains that regulation by big government is hindering, not helping energy innovation, leaders in the Latino green movement think that preserving the environment is linked to issues of inequality. This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
