IS CLIMATE CHANGE SLIPPING DOWN THE AGENDA?
This article considers the reasons why this is happening so soon after the Paris agreement. The main reason, I would suggest, is that our political masters know only too well how unpopular these policies are going to be, and so they put them on "the back burner" as much as possible. But don't imagine they have gone away for ever. There are still a large number of vested interests who will keep reminding our leaders that they must "do more to save the planet", and put out scary reports and stories to try to keep things going.
