“There is no good news – nothing at all.” That’s the view of James R May, distinguished professor of law at Delaware Law School, when it comes to the US president Donald Trump’s record on environmental regulation.
Melodramatic? Certainly not from an environmentalist’s perspective.

Some are very big-ticket items indeed.
