This is Beyond Politics Two Vanderbilt professors are taking a creative approach to solving climate change. Our guests, Michael Vandenbergh and Jonathan Gilligan recently released a new book Beyond Politics, discussing the role private entities can play in reducing carbon emissions even without the US government taking action. They tell us how we can make a meaningful difference by changing our behavior at home. US households emit as many carbon emissions as all of the countries in South America combined.
Michael P Vandenbergh is the David Daniels Allen Distinguished Chair of Law at Vanderbilt University. He is also Director of the Climate Change Research Network and Co-director of the Energy, Environment and Land Use Program.
Michael talks to us about his new book: Beyond Politics: The Private Governance Response to Climate Change.
Far from a rallying cry to Governments to act when they’ve spent years and decades ignoring the problem, Beyond Politics, as the title suggests, goes into how the private and household sectors can combine to make a huge impact in mitigating climate change.
