Ed Rivet Podcast Episode

He’s Leading Michigan Conservatives in the Clean Energy Transformation

August 5, 2020 | |

The conversation is different: talk U.S. energy security, national security, stable economy, revenue streams for farmers. Just don’t mention climate change.

In this week’s edition of the Speaking of Resilience podcast, Ed Rivet, executive director of the Michigan Conservative Energy Forum (and Chevy Volt driver), joins host Kate Madigan, director of Michigan Climate Action Network, for a look at the many points on which liberals and conservatives can agree when it comes to moving clean energy forward in the Mitten!
