Over the weekend, the media announced what it described as a "historic" climate deal. President Obama and John Kerry sprang to the microphones to pat themselves on the backs for all the hard work. Kerry called it a testament to Obama's leadership and assured the nation that it would be a net jobs creator.
But what did they agree to? Funny, but that little nugget of information was oddly absent from the story.
Initially, that got me nervous. Anytime you hear about a historic deal that nobody's talking specifics on, it's typically a bad thing. (Think Trans-Pacific Partnership.) So I went digging.
On today's show, I outline my findings and discuss what it means for America and your energy prices.
Next it's on to a report showing oil prices at an 11 year low. I think it's important we discuss how this happened and contrast the actual results of supply/demand at work with what Obama said was going to happen. I'd say it's shocking, but nothing progressives do shock me anymore.
There's a lot on the show today. Lots to get through. Listen to the full episode now.
