October 13, 2016—Cara Horowitz, co-executive director of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, and Professor Jonathan Zasloff were quoted in an article for the Yale Climate Connections which includes an interactive simulator that predicts climate policy under Trump or Clinton.
Horowitz predicts that if Trump is elected as president, “All bets are off on climate regulation in the United States.” She also believes that Trump’s lawyers could also neglect to defend the Clean Power Plan in court. “God help us. God help us all,” she says.
Professor Zasloff predicts, “Let us suppose that Clinton wins but the Republicans hold the Senate. If that happens, I believe that … we will not see a replacement for Justice Scalia for her entire term.”
