As the year comes to an end, we thought to summarize Trump’s on-and-off teenage relationship with climate change (so far) that led environmental progress to ruin.

With environmental progress first hindered by a politician, then by the pandemic, what do we do now? Here is a list of what "not to do" to inspire you to take action in the new year before it's too late.
