Conservatism... It's the New Liberalism
During the dog days of summer, I took a 5-week road trip through the Midwest and down the East Coast to cover Al Gore's Climate Reality Leadership Summit and the ALEC Annual Conference in Chicago, the unfolding bankruptcy in Detroit, Rep. Jeff Duncan's Faith & Freedom BBQ in Anderson, SC, and American for Prosperity's Defending the American Dream Summit in Orlando. Five seemingly disparate events, one common thread... the different approaches to dealing with, or in the case of many Republicans, exacerbating climate change. Featuring interviews with Al Gore's leading scientific adviser, Dr. Mike MacCracken; Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI 3); Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC 3); Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI); and environmental and social activists.
