Who is Neil Gorsuch?


This week on Parts Per Billion, our biweekly podcast, we’re going to be asking the question that everyone on Capitol Hill is going to be asking in a few days: Who is Neil Gorsuch?

Gorsuch, of course, is the federal judge President Donald Trump has chosen to succeed the late Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. His Senate confirmation hearings are scheduled to begin later this month.

But, aside from that, who is Gorsuch really? And, if he’s confirmed and takes Scalia’s long-empty seat, how will that change the way the court rules on environmental issues?
