Union Of Concerned Scientists On Trump Climate Policy

The Trump Administration is soon to release its budget numbers. One thing the Obama Administration invested in was climate research and renewable energy. But the new budget will determine whether the U.S. will stay a part of the Paris Climate Agreement and if the Administration will de-emphasize scientific expertise in U.S. energy and climate policy.

In light of the Trump Administration’s climate stance, Ken Kimmell, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists talks about his current initiative to show corporations and investors that sustainable policies can be more profitable than our current reliance on fossil fuels.
