Earth Day Began With Bipartisanship. How Did The Climate Get So Polarized?

The environment used to be a bipartisan issue. Now it's one of America's most polarizing topics. How did we get to this point? Is there a way out of the political logjam?

Approaching the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Tim Profeta, director of the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, joined WFAE's Charlotte Talks program to discuss how the political conversation around the environment has changed over time in the United States and the environment's place as an issue in the 2020 election.
