We talk with Gabrielle Gurley, Deputy Editor, American Prospect, about the effects of climate change on how we live. We talk about the power grid, and how it should be reconfigured for security, reliability, and its effect on climate.
We chat with Rebecca Burns, an investigative reporter, about housing for now and the future. There is a shortage of housing now, especially for low-income residents. We talk about PadSplit, a 'airBnb for flophouses', their availability, and the possible abuses of such developments, especially if they are investor-owned and operated. We agree that owner-occupied rental units are a way to avoid some problems. A critical mass of occupants is needed to push for changes in regulations.
