New studies shine a light on how climate crisis is affecting our mental and emotional well-being.
It’s the biggest move yet in the legal battle over global warming. Plus: the Trump administration wants to drill for oil off the entire US coastline, and Ryan Zinke is trying to reshape the Department of the Interior.
The rollbacks are part of a systemic effort to deregulate industry, but if 2010's Deepwater Horizon oil spill is any indication, eliminating the rules could end up costing more.
Despite current US policies, the world continues to work toward responsible climate policies, including important ocean protections. Plus: North Korea gets sanctioned again (and again and again and again), and the global back-and-forth between the US and Russia gets more complicated.
A new report saying that pollution is linked to millions of deaths each year arrives as the EPA under Scott Pruitt works to roll back environmental regulations.
Trump's EPA pulls the plug on the Clean Power Plan (but it won't bring coal back), Puerto Rico deals with tweetstorms as it tries to recover from Hurricane Maria, and North Korea discovers what it had long feared through cyber espionage.
Puerto Ricans are mostly without electricity and water after Hurricane Maria, North Korea claims the US has declared war, and Republicans turn to tax reform after a last-ditch effort at healthcare fails. PLUS: the Russia investigation turns to social media.
Hurricane Maria annihilates Puerto Rico’s power grid, Donald Trump delivers a bellicose, nationalistic address to the UN General Assembly, and Mueller turns the screws on former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort. PLUS: a new healthcare bill gains momentum in the Senate.
Hurricane Irma devastates parts of Florida, North Korea fires another missile over Japan, and the various investigations into Russian meddling turn to Michael Flynn and to cyber warfare.
Hurricane Irma devastates the Caribbean and threatens Florida, North Korea detonates its “most powerful ever” nuclear bomb, and Trump announces he’ll end DACA (although he hopes Congress finds a way to save it).
