Faced with plunging profits and a climate crisis that threatens fossil fuels, the industry is demanding a trade deal that weakens Kenya’s rules on plastics and on imports of American trash.

There is a mini-quiz you can take that helps you estimate your carbon footprint on a few items. You can find it here: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/08/30/climate/climate-footprint-quiz.html?action=click&module=Editors%20Picks&pgtype=Homepage

I am interested in your thoughts. Thanks for being here.
Love is the answer.
