Meeting the Climate Challenge in a Divided Congress: A Fireside Chat with Sen. Joe Manchin

This event has passed.

The Biden administration has prioritized clean energy, climate, and infrastructure to achieve economic recovery, long-term U.S. prosperity, and environmental goals. To reach durable progress toward net-zero emissions, the administration’s “whole of government,” approach depends on securing support for ambitious legislation in a closely divided Congress. No member of Congress is more central to this process than incoming Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Please join us for a conversation on the opportunities to promote clean energy and address climate change in the 117th Congress.
