    Pipeline projects that environmentalists believed were dead could rise again under Trump.

    The Carl’s Jr.-Hardees debate that has been raging on this show isn’t going anywhere. Donald Trump looks set to name the grease peddler's CEO, Andrew Puzder, to Labor Secretary. We’re gonna have a fast food guy enforcing workplace laws.

    Then, we take the long view of recent environmental victories: blows against the Keystone XL, Sandpiper, and Dakota Access pipelines. Journalist Steve Horn from DeSmogBlog joins us to preview the green fights on the horizon, including battles on turf that we thought we already won.

    Also, sticking with the conversation on Green issues… we Drill Baby, Drill into Trump’s team on environmental regulations, or the impending lack thereof. Naomi Lachance from the Intercept drops by to talk about Trump’s EPA pick and more.

    And we tune into Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s final speech, which included a glimpse into his social life.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
