Listen: Congressman behind 'Hot FERC Summer' lauds agency's role in climate fight

Representative Sean Casten, Democrat-Illinois, has not been shy in sharing his belief that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will be essential in combatting climate change and pivotal to achieving the US' ambitious clean energy and decarbonization goals.

To get the message across and garner support for legislation aimed at granting FERC greater authority to facilitate the shift to a clean energy economy, the congressman has put his spin on Megan Thee Stallion and Fergie hits while delivering remarks on the House floor.

Jasmin Melvin spoke with Casten, a member of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis and a former energy industry executive, about his tactics, FERC and climate policy.

They talk about the need for power market design reforms, biofuels' role in reducing carbon emissions, and concerns that Congress is not acting with the urgency the climate crisis demands.
