It’s confirmed: President Donald Trump’s executive orders on Tuesday cleared the way for the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. This order has temperatures rising across the country, as we’ve seen debates and protests over both the Keystone Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline. This week on Bold TV, we will discuss the politics of these pipelines, the Trump Administration’s environmental policies and more.

Carrie Sheffield and Clay Aiken are both traveling and will be out of town, but don’t worry, the show is in good hands. Both great friends of Bold, Kirsten Haglund and Alyona Minkovski will be our guest hosts. Kirsten is a Political Analyst, the host of The Sonder Podcast on Faithwire.com and a former Miss America. Alyona is a TV journalist, who has worked with The Huffington Post, Russia Today and more. She is the former host for HuffPost Live and of The Alyona Show.
We’ll discuss this week’s headlines with Sarah Hill, a friend of Bold and the CEO of Bookstr. After headlines, we’ll jump into our discussion on Trump and the environment. We’ll ask: how will Trump’s conflicting views on climate change affect the United States for the next four years? How will Rick Perry run the Energy Department? What happens if the US leaves the Paris Agreement?
To help us answer these questions, we will bring in guests Clara del Villar and David Kanter for the conversation. Clara works with the organization Fueling Us Forward, which strives to improve the awareness and use of energy innovation, and David is a Professor of Environmental Studies at NYU with a PhD in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy.
To finish out the show, we will be joined by Amelia Hamilton from Opportunity Lives. She will bring to light how the increased number of children in foster homes is tied to the Opioid epidemic.
