Congress is expected to pass the new climate and health care bill. One way it's designed to fight climate change is by changing how we use energy in our homes. Nathan Iyer and Srinidhi Sampath Kumar have helped shape the legislation. They're with the Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Institute. It's a nonprofit that works to advance the world's transition to cleaner energy.
