    On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" host Eugene Puryear is joined by Jesse Coleman, researcher with Greenpeace USA’s investigation team focusing on fracking, the oil and gas industry and corporate power in politics to talk about President Elect Trump's cabinet picks of Scott Pruitt to head the EPA and Wilbur Ross to head the Commerce Department.  The pair talk about the alarming fact that Trump's cabinet picks thus far are climate deniers, billionaires and generals, and talk about the role of civil disobedience in effecting climate policy.

    Later in the show host Eugene Puryear is joined by Polly Baca, a Colorado Elector, Former Colorado State Senator and current president and CEO of Baca Barragan & Associates to talk about her decision to sue the Colorado Governor and Secretary of State in an effort to overturn the rules that state an elector must vote for the ticket that received the most votes in the state. Baca also talks about the overall strategy and reasoning behind the elector to stop Donald J Trump from becoming president.
