The Trump administration may be trying to move us backward, forfeiting leadership for USA policy and businesses when it comes to clean energy innovation. "Falling solar and wind prices have led to new power deals across the world despite investment in renewables falling" The Guardian coupled with evidence that renewables benefit the economy and create more jobs, it becomes even more important to neutralise the toxic Trump approach to me-first politics. Far from following the US move backward, other countries are moving ahead even more rapidly with clean energy innovation. We can still achieve the promise of Paris, but we have no time to lose.
