On today’s show we speak with Rep. Jared Huffman (D – CA) whose congressional district runs up California’s coast from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.
A long time ocean champion he talks about laws he’s helped pass to protect salmon and kelp forests, the removal of dams on the Klamath river and how offshore floating wind farms could be the greatest boom to the area’s economy since logging but with better outcomes. He also talks about what’s unique on “the redwood coast.” Join us in a hopeful conversation.
