Here is Paula, in her own words, about the episode.

Self-made billionaire and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer has been called a "rich guy ready to rumble on climate change."

Climate change is really his thing -- so much so that he’d declare an emergency on day one of his presidency. He tells me that he'd make climate change "the No. 1 priority of foreign policy."

On this episode of "Journeys of Faith," the former hedge fund manager-turned-activist explains how his faith informs his policies on climate change, immigration and some of the hot-button issues such as abortion and gun control. He also tells me about the meaningful daily ritual he says reminds him to "do the right thing."

Steyer responds to the critics who accuse him of buying his way into the race and point out that his wealth was largely amassed by profiting from the same companies he now criticizes.

And he also has something to say to Trump supporters: how he plans to be their president, if he's elected.
