Episode 13 - The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, part 1

EIn this episode, we talk climate policy! Specifically, we talk about a bipartisan carbon fee and dividend bill that was introduced in the House of Representatives last month. ("But Hope and Ana, what about batteries?" Why do you think we got into batteries in the first place if not for their implications re: climate change? :( Ok no but for real, carbon fee --> fossil fuels less economically viable in the future --> solar/wind power MORE economically viable in the future --> energy storage Very Needed And Wanted --> more funding for battery research, probably!) Part 1 covers the basics of the bill! Impress your friends with your knowledge of its agricultural exemptions, its basis in IPCC findings, its special prescription for fluorinated greenhouse gases, and more! (And then tune in next time for the economic effect of the dividend, our takes on how this would interact with a Green New Deal, and, you guessed it, MORE) Sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAfWTppsc2w -The Energy ...

EIn this episode, Hope talks hydrogen storage with her mom (Gloria) and her sister (Dana)! (Ana isn't in this one because it was the holidays and we weren't in the same state.) We've got space flight, we've got submarines, we've got van der Waals forces, and we've got lots of questions about whether hydrogen could bea useful fuel for everyday applications like cars. Brass quintet version of our theme song arranged by Hope's dad (Bill Wilson) and featuring Bill on the tuba, Gloria and Dana on French horn, Alex (Hope's brother) on trumpet, and Hope on trombone.
