With the effects of climate change already being felt around the globe and corporate money influencing policy, the election of November 2012 represents a critical moment for the environment.
In a teleconference held a few days after the election, Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen and Vice President of Policy and Legislation Martin Hayden reviewed election results, assessed the impact on Earthjustice's work, and answered questions from Earthjustice supporters. The discussion was moderated by National Press Secretary Kari Birdseye.
The effects are clear, if not the cause, says L.A. Times.
