PODCAST: Trump Won, Now What?


The results are in. Donald Trump is going to be our next president, and Republicans will maintain control of both chambers of Congress.

What will this mean for environmental policy? Right now, we have more questions than answers:

Who will be picked to lead the Environmental Protection Agency? Will there be any shakeups in key environmental committees on Capitol Hill? And will Republicans now have the power to nullify or at least mitigate many of the Obama Administration's signature environmental initiatives such as the Clean Power Plan and the Paris climate agreement.

To tackle these questions, we tossed our usual podcast format. Bloomberg BNA political reporters Brian Dabbs and Rachel Leven join me for a special live edition of our biweekly environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, recorded just hours after the presidential race ended early Wednesday morning.
