When he first started working as a climate scientist, Spencer Reeder went to Antarctica and studied melting glaciers and sea level rise. Later, he fought for better climate policy in Washington State. But he now works for one of the world’s largest car companies. I talked to Reeder about why he made the switch to Audi, and how he’s working to change transportation emissions from within the industry.

Bausch + Lomb IPO comes into focus: What you need to know
Bausch + Lomb, which specializes in selling contact lenses, eye drops, and more, is expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange on Friday under the “BLCO” ticker.
