After much anxiety, social justice and climate activists were mostly heartened by the mid-term election results. Now, what are the next steps we must take to ensure that a progressive agenda moves forward in Oregon and across the country?

On this episode of Locus Focus we do an election retrospective with Eric de Place, Sightline Institute programs director, as well as a forecast for the upcoming legislative sessions in Oregon and Washington. We also check in on what's happening with fossil fuel fights around the Northwest.

Eric de Place, Sightline Institute programs director, oversees research and communications teams. He is also a researcher, writer, speaker, and policy analyst who spearheads the Institute’s work on energy policy. Known as a leading expert on coal and oil export plans in the Pacific Northwest, he is considered an authority on a range of issues connected to fossil fuel transport, including carbon emissions, local pollution, transportation system impacts, rail policy, and economics.
