2018 Clean Energy Year in Review: Reversing Trump Rollbacks
Happy Friday --
Many of us learned in high school about Newtonâ€™s third law of physics: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. 2018 was a lesson in physics: the Trump administrationâ€™s furious assault on pollution protections has, in turn, catalyzed a powerful and growing movement that is pushing back against these misguided rollback attempts.
This year was filled with signs that the climate resistance momentum is building, as state champions and businesses are heeding the mountingÂ wake-up calls (https://www.nrdc.org/experts/roland-hwang/ipcc-report-isnt-death-knell-its-wake-call) Â from scientists to redouble efforts to accelerate the transition to clean energy. The progress is widespread and gaining momentum, from renewable energy commitments to strides in energy efficiency to getting more electric vehicles on the road.
As the clock ticks down on the its last two years of the Trump administration, we fully expect the pace and intensity of their attacks to greatly increase. In 2019, NRDC attorneys and advocates will continue to fight them every step of the way, while forging the path forward toward a clean energy future.Â Â
