President Obama’s chief environmental advisor Nancy Sutley didn’t mince words when she promised that the President would stake his political future to rally Congress behind a sweeping climate change bill. The time for the President to start throwing around his weight may have become, as the Senate took up a carbon cap-and-trade bill that promises to be both revolutionary and controversial.

Guests:

Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality; principal environmental policy adviser to President Obama
