Christopher Wright Imagines Trump’s Environmental Legacy in 2019

“The election of Donald Trump as US president has radically changed the trajectory of US and global energy markets.”

Have you wondered what the future of US Environmental Policy looks like under Trump?

Professor Christopher Wright from the University of Sydney Business School recently wrote a blog called What If? Trump’s Environmental Legacy In 2019. The blog discusses a podcast by Christopher Wright and Jane Lê, Associate Professor at the University of Sydney Business School. Christopher and Jane imagine what January 2019 might look like in the US with respect to the environment, energy and climate change.

Wright focuses on “the climate change aspects of Trump’s likely policy agenda, particularly his threatened winding back of former President Obama’s clean energy legislation and commitment to the Paris climate agreement.”

This ‘what if’ podcast is set two years into the future in January 2019. It explores “how the election of Donald Trump as US president has radically changed the trajectory of US and global energy markets. Associate Professor Jane Le and Professor Christopher Wright discuss how this major political outcome shapes energy futures. Our what if podcasts are an invitation to imagine and explore complex implications of potential dramatic change on the future of business.”
