Episode 6: What would it take for Louisiana to go carbon neutral by 2050?

Reporter Tegan Wendland talks us through it.

Gov. John Bel Edwards wants Louisiana to dramatically cut its emissions by 2050. What would it take to get there?

This week on Life Raft, reporter Tegan Wendland breaks it down for us. We talk about where Louisiana’s emissions come from, what changes need to be made to reduce them and the hurdles standing in the way, and do a little imagining about what New Orleans might look like in 2050.
