One Planet: What Impact Will The US Election Have On A Warming Planet?
On this edition of Your Call's One Planet Series, just a day before the election, we are discussing what’s at stake for the climate. Over the past four years, the Trump administration has launched a war on science and climate scientists.
Trump has promised to pull the US out of the Paris climate agreement, dismantled major climate policies and rolled back nearly 100 rules governing clean air and water, wildlife, and toxic chemicals. What's at stake if he is reelected? What changes will be made under a Biden administration?
