Fossil Politics of Texas

Monday, September 26, 2022

It's safe to say this week has been political hell in the UK. So let's take a break and check out what happening on the other side of the pond. Texas, 2nd largest state in the USA has one of the most deregulated energy sectors in the country and after biting cold snaps, intense heat and rocketing energy prices something has to change.To discuss with us the forces at work in Texas and the challenges for Socialists,  Trade Unionists and Progressives we are joined by David Griscom (@DavidGriscom). David is born and bred Texan and political commentator known from the Micheal Brooks Show and Left Reckoning.

We discuss the current state of Texas's energy sector, the union busting taking place at oil and gas companies, why the renewable sector isn't a just transition for workers yet and if the Inflation Reduction Act is all it's cracked up to be?
