FEATURING BASAV SEN – A new report about the migration of trees north- and west-ward in the US in response to climate change, has underscored once more how little time we have left to waste. Climate action has stalled after the Paris Accord, and the election of Donald Trump has thrown a wrench into many plans to deal with global warming.
The news is grim, but all is not lost. A new report from the Institute for Policy Studies offers a path for states to quickly adopt renewable energy infrastructure in the absence of federal action. The report is entitled How States Can Boost Renewables With Benefits For All.
