Christmas is a time for hope but this year many are feeling crushed by the US election results. Last Christmas we were celebrating the great triumph of COP21, this year we are preparing for what is shaping up to be a very destructive US presidency. This is a pivotal moment in world history. On January 20th, an anti-science climate denier will become the leader of the most powerful nation on earth. We will do our best to remain hopeful and we promise to keep fighting the good fight. The stakes are too high to countenance failure.
