President Jimmy Carter: An Environmental Advocate
Imagine this: The White House roof has been covered in solar panels, which capture the sun’s energy to heat water used inside. Legislation has been passed to clean up America’s hazardous waste sites. Instead of offering up land to destructive mining operations, national parks and wildlife refuges are being created to preserve its wilderness. It may sound like a futuristic fantasy, but these were the programs being implemented in the late 1970s during Jimmy Carter’s presidency.

Interior Secretary David Bernhardt used his power to extend Pendley’s appointment and once again side-step the requirement of a confirmation from Congress. Pendley was first made acting director in the summer of 2019, and his current appointment will last until January 3, 2020. Many environmentalist groups have raised concerns about this appointment due to Pendley’s history of anti-public land sentiment.

From Australia to Afghanistan, South Korea to Senegal, millions of people joined together in solidarity this past week to demand action on climate change. Youth have mobilized and planned strikes in over 150 different countries, according to The Global Climate Strike website.

The strike was strategically planned to precede the United Nations General Assembly and the Climate Action Summit this upcoming week.
