Dylan talks to Dan Froomkin, senior Washington correspondent for the Huffington Post, about the hidden costs of energy in America. Dan describes the latest big lobbying victories for the industry, and how lobbyists focus most on making enormous tax breaks and subsidies politically untouchable. In addition, he describes what may be their greatest success -- stifling any attempts to assess the industry for its carbon externalities. Paul previously spent 12 years working for the Washington Post, and is also deputy editor of NiemanWatchdog.org, a website that encourages more accountability journalism. He began his journalism career as a reporter at the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal, the Miami Herald and the Orange County (Calif.) Register.
