U.S. Congressman Jamie Raskin lambasts the oil and gas industry’s misinformation campaign and counterposes the climate crisis to the January 6th attacks. A constitutional expert, Representative Raskin also thinks out loud about whether there is a constitutional right to a livable climate.
We have to secure our democracy with the right to vote against all of the destabilizing right-wing threats, and then from there, once we put that threat to rest, we will be able to galvanize and mobilize the country and the attention of the world to this civilizational crisis that we’re in. – U.S. Representative Jamie Raskin
