This is the first in a monthly series highlighting the clean energy achievements and climate action continuing across the United States — despite the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back federal climate policies. Each blog will focus on a different region of the country. What better place to start than the region where NRDC is headquartered?As NRDC and others fight Trump and Congress in Washington, it’s more important than ever that state and city officials―as well as businesses and investors―continue the fight against climate change and the fight for our much-needed transition to a low-carbon energy system. From Maine to Maryland, the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions are proof that such efforts can boost the economy, cut customers’ energy bills, and slash power plant pollution.
This is exactly what has been written here on EarthNetwork.news frequently – we do not have to rely on the Federal Government fools to make the changes needed because clearly they are not going to do it. Go local first, then state – force the changes from the ground up. It’s the only way forward.
