The Inflation Reduction Act: “It Really is Historic”

In this episode, Eva talks with Liz Moran about the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and its many environmental and climate provisions. Liz is the Policy Advocate for New York at Earth Justice, the public interest environmental law firm. She gives us a broad picture of the law, walking us through much of the good the law will do in electrification, solar energy, fair-wage jobs. While the IRA is a huge win for the planet, we also hear what’s lacking, like training for those green-collar jobs, and what’s outright bad, provisions that will prolong the use of fossil fuels.
