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. In fact, a guidance memo brought to light just this week would let states release more ozone air pollution than is currently allowed. Of course, the alarm bells starting ringing decades ago about the effects of all this — thanks in large part to Bill McKibben, whose book ‘The End of Nature’ warned us back in the 1980s about the oncoming global disaster.
