Former President Bill Clinton was on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart Tuesday night talking about his new book, “Back to Work. ”
In recent years, Clinton has been a strong advocate for clean energy and addressing climate change, helping bring together numerous large-scale investments in the sector through the Clinton Global Initiative.
In his new book, Clinton outlines a strategy for deploying more renewables and efficiency as a way to continue creating jobs and enhance America’s competitiveness. Ignoring the political pressure to ditch clean energy as a jobs creator, Clinton continues his strong public messaging on the need to invest in the sector.
Due to copyright issues, we can’t isolate specific pieces of the interview. It’s worth listening to the whole conversation. But if you want to skip straight to the clean energy portion, start at around 3:50.
