While No One Was Watching: Changing Environmental Regulations Under the Trump Administration
May 14, 2020
1-2:30pm, ET, via webinar

On May 14, James McElfish will be a panelist in a special webinar for journalists hosted by the Earth Institute of Columbia University and the Society of Environmental Journalists.  Prof. Ann Carlson, an ELI Board Member, will also participate. During more than three years in office, President Trump has attempted to undo dozens of environmental regulations. That effort has taken on a new dimension during the pandemic. In a move that some environmental groups call reckless, the Administration has ordered a stop to enforcement of many of its environmental and health protections.  For more information, visit https://www.sej.org/calendar/sej-webinar-while-no-one-was-watching-changing-environmental-regulations-under-trump
