Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States.
This couldn’t have happened at a worst time. Just over a year ago, President Obama announced the Clean Power Plan, a serious plan at long last for reducing emissions through the EPA. That’s good as dead. The Paris Agreement, signed by 193 countries committing to holding global warming to 2°C, was negotiated last year and took effect just days ago. That’s in serious trouble too if Trump backs out.
This blog basically retired over the last year as climate action gained momentum around the world. It looks like it’s time to take up the fight again.
