The great American argument over global warming continues to rage on Capitol Hill and beyond. In The Climate War: True Believers, Power Brokers, and the Fight to Save the Earth, award-winning journalist Eric Pooley describes the political and economic battle surrounding climate change legislation, offering a revealing look at the power players who are working to either make or break transformative energy policy.

In a rare panel discussion, Pooley interviews key players of the Environmental Defense Fund’s National Climate Campaign, the most passionate advocates for a mandatory declining cap on carbon emissions. These unsung heroes from the trenches of the Climate War include Steve Cochran, Director; Tony Kreindler, Media Director; Melissa Carey, Climate Change Policy Specialist; and Mark MacLeod, Director of Special Projects. Together, they will lead a tour of the climate battleground, from the backrooms of Capitol Hill to the corporate C-suites to the West Wing of the Obama White House.

Pooley, deputy editor of Bloomberg Businessweek, is also the former managing editor of Fortune and the former national editor, White House correspondent and chief political correspondent at Time.
