The Evangelical Vote And The Environmental Agenda In The Trump Administration

On today's show:

  • Evangelical Christians voted for Trump in overwhelming numbers. We're joined by writer and filmmaker Frank Schaeffer, one of the country’s most prominent liberal Christian thinkers, to discuss why.
  • President-elect Trump has made a number of campaign promises with regards to energy, the environment and climate change. Howard Learner, executive director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center, joins us to talk about what those policies might look like.
