Episode #100: Nick Huey, The Climate Campaign

Matt chats with Nick Huey about his creative efforts to increase awareness about climate change, in coordination with University of Utah students. During this year’s rivalry football game between the two universities, Huey and others lit a giant purple Y in the mountains over LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo to bring attention to climate change. Nick described his background, how he became to be involved in climate work and generally how BYU students engage on the issue. He and Matt then talk about a new organization Nick has co-founded, The Climate Campaign, to be a moderate, nonpartisan, group to push for good climate change policies. They conclude by chatting about carbon fee and dividend, the policy Nick and many others strongly support to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
