Obama's Climate Legacy Will Be Harder to Undo Than Trump Thinks 7.1.2017 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by High Country News and appears here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Eight years ago, President-elect Barack Obama wanted Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar to be his Interior secretary.

Hayes, seeing a rare opportunity, told Salazar that as Interior secretary, he'd have the chance to make renewables on public land a signature issue.

The full brunt of the 60-year decline burst into view during the 2016 election. Trump triumphed in part by vowing to restore jobs at steel mills, auto plants and...
