Yesterday, I did a segment on climate change with Grist'Ben Adler and 350org's Jamie Henn on Huffington Post Live's Political Junkies with Alyona Minkovksi, reacting to the series of speeches given on the floor by the U.S. Senate's Climate Action Task Force the previous evening. The discussion delved into why, despite the positive public relations impact of the Task Force's actions, a legislative response to combat climate change was not in the offing. We also riffed on climate change denial, the role of the media in mis- or under-reporting climate change, and why the United States has a moral responsibility to lead on this issue.

We also soberly weighed in on the merits of President Obama's appearance on comedian Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns. You can watch the whole segment below.
