The Environmental Movement in the New Federal Landscape
IPA members are invited to attend this funders-only webinar, hosted by the Associated Grant Makers.
This free, 1-hour funder's teleconference features two national leaders on environmental issues: Ken Kimmell, President of Union of Concerned Scientists and Bradley Campbell, President of Conservation Law Foundation. They will cover the status of policy changes and strategies of defense, as well as the hopeful signs that clean energy and a clean environment is a populist interest.
New policies emerging at the federal level regarding the environment and climate change have the potential to have profound effects domestically and globally. President Trump’s proposal to cut back the EPA’s budget by 31% is the largest cut of any U.S. agency. Further, some reports cite that his planned policies could lead to an increase in emissions equivalent to 60% of American homes by 2025. Some environmental leaders assert that the planet can ill afford this direction nor the discounted attitude of science itself. What is the environmental movement doing?
