President-elect Joe Biden has vowed to rejoin the 2015 Paris climate accord as soon as he is inaugurated. Biden has promised to launch a bold climate change plan and restore dozens of environmental safeguards President Trump abolished. But how far can a Biden administration go on climate policy without the support of Republicans? Will he face stiff opposition to his most sweeping programs?

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss climate policy under a new administration are Union of Concerned Scientists Climate and Energy Program Policy Director Rachel Cleetus, Ph.D.; and How to Save a Planet podcast Senior Climate Reporter Kendra Pierre-Louis.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
