01/21/15: 2015 State Of The Union Address; State Climatologist David Zierden

In his sixth State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Barack Obama made populist calls for increasing the minimum wage, instituting paid sick leave and passing equal pay legislation. He also pushed sweeping tax reform. We analyze the president's speech with Dr. Mike Binder, professor of political science and director Public Opinion Research Laboratory at UNF, and A.G. Gancarski, columnist for Folio Weekly.

Then Dr. David Zierden, state climatologist at FSU, joins us to discuss climate change concerns in Florida, as well as potential solutions.

Sean Birch joined the WJCT team in late 2011 and was with the company until 2016.
