Editor’s note: The chat’s now over, but you can replay it in full.

This month, The New Yorker ran an extraordinary 10,000-word piece by reporter Ryan Lizza detailing the climate bill’s slow and inglorious failure in the U.S. Senate.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

I’m very pleased to report that Lizza will be stopping by for a chat with Grist readers and me today, Thursday Oct. 14, at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific). I’ll be moderating and selecting questions.
