"What Trump’s Environmental Rollbacks Mean for Global Warming"

"President Trump has made dismantling federal climate policies a centerpiece of his administration. A new analysis from the Rhodium Group finds those rollbacks add up to a lot more planet-warming emissions."

"A handful of major climate rules reversed or weakened under Mr. Trump could have a significant effect on future emissions.

Together, these rollbacks are expected to result in an additional 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by 2035.

That’s more than the combined energy emissions of Germany, Britain and Canada in one year."

Nadja Popovich and Brad Plumer report for the New York Times September 17, 2020.
