Biden has recently released his American Jobs Plan, which is a $2.3 trillion dollar proposal to reinvent the way that the US operates. This bonus episode goes through what the bill entails and what it means for the future of the US. The Plan has been declared one of the most ambitious climate plans put forth by heavily industrialized countries, even though climate isn’t in the name.
usually try to stay away from politics on this show, but bonus episodes like this one will occasionally look at politics because as tiresome as it can seem sometimes, it takes political, systemic changes to make a real difference. Even though I’m not American, I recognize the important role that the US can play in taking action against climate change, so regardless of your political beliefs or even where you live, it’s important to have an idea of what the leaders of our world are thinking. Check out the links below for more information on the Plan, as well as some cool information on Iceland (listen until the end), and an episode from How To Save a Planet that goes through the Plan in more depth.

Innovating a Bright Future is the podcast that brings together technology and climate action in an engaging interview format that showcases some of the most interesting initiatives taking place across the globe. If you are someone who cares about climate change but you’re tired of hearing about how the world is going to explode in a few short years if we don’t do something soon (What does that even mean?), then this podcast is for you. We stay away from divisive politics and meaningless numbers with no context, and instead I interview climate action leaders implementing revolutionary ideas that are helping to reduce our impact on the world around us.

Who am I?
My name is Avry Krywolt, I am a student from Alberta Canada, I am passionate about taking action against climate change, and I am the host of Innovating a Bright Future. I’ve noticed through my own experience that the number of people concerned about climate change is growing quickly. At the same time, the information being presented to the public is, in most cases, a sad sigh of defeat, irrational denialism, or frantic screaming that does no one any good. The fact is that climate change is happening, but it is not hopeless, and you are not powerless. TED speaker and climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe said that “The most important thing you can for climate change is talk about it.” so let’s talk about it. Let’s learn about solar energy and battery storage, let’s dig into green hydrogen, and wind, and the power of water, and the importance of sustainable energy. Let’s learn and let’s discuss. We aren’t doomed, but we have to work hard in order to keep climate change from wreaking real havoc on our world. So let’s get to work.
