Trumping the Climate: Coming in Hot
The Trump administration’s determination to revive coal mining and domestic oil drilling is causing concern that international efforts to combat climate change will crumble. But how far will the new Trump team be able to shrink rules created under President Obama and as far back as President Nixon? U.S. Senator John McCain recently cast a deciding vote against a Republican effort to roll back restrictions on methane, a powerful heat-trapping gas. California, long the vanguard of environmental protections, vows to keep forging ahead with its climate agenda.
What are the new politics of carbon? How much change will the Trump administration really bring to the climate change fight? What are energy investors and companies doing in the new political context? Join a conversation about energy, markets and the mainstream news media.
