President Biden announced his goal to make new vehicles greener in his administration’s first major use of federal regulatory power to cut carbon emissions. Still, some climate advocacy groups say that Biden's executive order doesn’t go far enough compared to the plans of other countries to achieve zero emissions. New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo has been given until Friday the 13th to submit evidence in his defense for his impeachment investigation, which began back in March and focused not only on sexual harassment claims but also the handling of data about COVID deaths in nursing homes. We discuss what the impeachment process might look like with Josefa Velasquez, senior reporter at The City.And in headlines: the Justice Department launches an investigation into Phoenix's police department, wildfires rage in Europe and the U.S., and Ibiza enlists undercover officers to infiltrate illegal dance parties.Show Notes:NY Times: “Facing Loss of Supporters, Cuomo Gains Attention From Prosecutors” – https://nyti.ms/3lCKmfsFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday
