The new president is unwinding Trump’s climate change legacy while forging his own

Jan. 21, 2020

President Biden placed climate change squarely at the center of his White House agenda on Wednesday, using his first hours in office to rejoin the Paris climate accord and begin overturning more than 100 environmental actions taken by the Trump administration.

See the full article for a discussion of the various actions being considered for roll-back.

Following that are Chemical Safety policies to be addressed, then Drilling and Extraction,

then Infrastructure and permitting, then transparency, then Water pollution, then Wildlife. This will be an important series to follow.
