Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna
Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna campaigns

The votes have been counted and another election day has come and gone. We recap the major races, reflect on the new reality of our political landscape and hear your reaction to last night's results at 206.543.KUOW (5869) or weekday@kuow.org.

Also this hour: writer and environmentalist Bill McKibben and 350.orgkick off their “Do the Math” climate change tour today. According to 350, life on Earth will be threatened if the planet's temperature rises just 2°C (3.6°F). To stay below that, they estimate that we can burn up to 565 more gigatons of CO2 — but no more. How can we do that if fossil fuel companies have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves? Bill McKibben joins us to talk about what math can tell us about climate change.
