ESP Newsletter Winter 2020

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a time for hope and optimism. Greenhouse gas emissions are rising (atmospheric CO2 at 412 ppm +), Australia is burning, the Right Whale is dying, and 95 US environmental rules are being rolled back. So, at this time of celebration commemorating the 50th anniversary of a magical event, we find ourselves surrounded by a planet and political system in flux. This is also a presidential election year in the United States. The kind of challenges we face rival any in our history and calls out for dedicated, inspirational leadership. We need leadership to forge a pathway towards a pro-conservation, pro-planet, and an environmentally sustainable economy.
