We saved the best for last! For our final interview of 2020, we talked with Senator Markey who recently won re-election after fending off a tough primary challenge from Congressman Joe Kennedy III. We asked him how he turned his campaign around by making climate change a central issue, how he galvanized the support of young people, and how other Democratic candidates around the country can run on climate change by taking a page from his playbook. Senator Markey is also optimistic about the way to get bipartisan support behind President-elect Joe Biden’s climate agenda and about the chances for Democrats winning both Senate races in Georgia. And he had some advice for Secretary Kerry on how the U.S. can re-engage globally on climate change — as he said, we “can’t preach temperance from a barstool!” Thanks so much to Senator Markey for helping us end 2020 on a high note!

Felix Tropf, a professor in […]
