As The New York Times recently reported, the United States is right in the middle of an era of deregulation in Washington, with climate change regulations particularly hit hard. Despite a terrifying U.N. report from more than 90 scientists around the world saying the world is just over a decade away from disaster if we don’t act now, the Trump administration continues with its anti-climate agenda.
