First thoughts on President-Elect Trump

34 minutes

The climate stakes of last night's election are so huge as to be almost unfathomable. Hundreds of years, dozens of generations. We can't get around that fact. The future of humanity -- and all the species we share this planet with -- is much more murky now than it was 24 hours ago. That's not an exaggeration.

This week, Eric, Jacquelyn and Andy are answering three questions:

What changes on climate, now that Trump is President-Elect?

How are people in the climate community responding?

Where do we go from here, as a community, and as climate-focused individuals?
