Molly Scott Cato: Trump is waging war on the environment

"Trump has just confirmed his intention to wage war on the environment. Ejecting the US from the Paris Agreement is an assault on scientific evidence and a confrontation with businesses and the US and global economy; one that is marching rapidly towards decarbonisation. This decision attempts to take the US back to a by-gone era where fossil fuels ruled, just at a time when we are at the dawn of a green energy revolution."

Marching for Science

Ahead of the March for Science, taking place in Bristol tomorrow, Saturday, Molly says: “I am delighted to join this important march for science in Bristol. The city has a long and proud tradition of scientific leadership and is the world’s largest hub for wildlife film making. The fact that Bristol plays host to a great deal of scientific and environmental research and innovation was a key reason for Bristol being selected as European Green Capital.
