Last week, we got several pieces of good news on the climate politics front:
"Trump administration delays decision on leaving climate pact,” by Coral Davenport and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times
“Senate unexpectedly rejects bid to repeal a key Obama-era environmental regulation,” by Juliet Eilperin and Chelsea Harvey, The Washington Post
“U.S. endorses global action to curb greenhouse gases at Arctic summit,” by Megan Darby, Climate Home
Creative solutions were evident on the state and local level:
“Rahm Emanuel recoups climate change info deleted from EPA website,” by Fran Spielman, Chicago Sun Times
“Chugach Alaska Corporation sells carbon credits to California,” by Kristin Butler, Indian Country Today
Researchers identified new strategies for communicating #climatefacts, and for quickly reducing greenhouse gases:
“Study: To beat science denial, inoculate against misinformers' tricks,” by Dana Nuccitelli, The Guardian

Recently released conference videos can get you up to speed. Watch them here.
It's all about taking the intiative--and in this coming Thursday's blog, “Climate Champion” Matthew Mueller will share his experience leading a communications workshop for fellow medical students and others.
