Description

In episode 171, Dr. Jesse Keenan of Tulane University returns to discuss the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act and how adaptation and resilience are built into the legislation. We discuss the misleading adaptation coverage in the media and why the Act represents a significant investment in climate resilience. Jesse takes a deep dive and explains how adaptation is built into tax policies, clean energy credits, community investment and much more in the legislation. Joining the podcast in a bonus interview is Samantha Medlock, the Senior Counsel for the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis where she explains what’s next for adaptation legislation in the U.S. Congress.

Topics covered:

  • Misleading coverage of adaptation in the Inflation Reduction Act.
  • How the Act integrates with other adaptation legislation, e.g., the Infrastructure Bill of 2021.
  • Gaps in Adaptation funding and legislation
  • Is a National Adaptation Plan even more critical now?
  • Bonus interview: House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis discusses potential next steps for adaptation legislation
  • Topics Covered from the Act that relate to adaptation.
