Today I received "Nature's Voice" -- the newsletter put out by the Natural Resource
Defense Council (NRDC). Usually, I just skim it to see if there is anything which interests me
or my concerns. But now with a president who I feel cares almost nothing about animals
and the environment, I knew I just couldn't put it aside or skim its articles.
Also, the four topics mentioned on the cover page made me realize that I needed to read
this issue in depth. The first article I tackled dealt with President Trump's reckless
withdrawal from the Paris climate accord. Thankfully, two other major players stepped up
to uphold their Paris commitments and are even on track to exceed their goals "The
unlikely champions of climate resolve are China and India, which together account for
about one-third of the world's greenhouse gas emissions." NRDC is working in both
countries to help them advance to a clean energy revolution.
