Live Chat: Ryan Lizza Talks Climate

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza, who took a hard look at Senate’s failure to pass a climate bill in a mammoth recent piece, is swinging by Grist at 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST on Thursday to answer readers’ questions in a live chat with Grist‘s David Roberts. We are streaming the chat here at Mother Jones, too. Here’s the scoop from Roberts:

This month, The New Yorker ran an extraordinary 10,000-word piece by reporter Ryan Lizza detailing the climate bill’s slow and inglorious failure in the U.S. Senate. It was a feat of inside reporting, meaty enough to support dozens of follow-on posts dissecting and illuminating it. I myself wrote no less than five posts spinning off Lizza’s story:

I could have kept going, too, if my colleagues hadn’t started to mock me.

I’m very pleased to report that Lizza will be stopping by for a chat with Grist readers and me on Thursday at 2 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m. Pacific. I’ll be moderating and selecting questions.

Questions for Lizza? Leave ’em in the comments section on Roberts’ post here. You can watch the chat here:

 

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
