Meeting Program: Kerry Clough - The New Administration’s Environmental Priorities
  • Kerry had a long career working for the EPA from which he retired  in 2008. Since then, he’s been involved with volunteering and speaking engagements with groups like Conifer Rotary.
  • Kerry gave a great talk to cover the environmental priorities of the new administration 
  • The Biden administration has priorities of both undoing some of the changes from the previous administration, as well as to bring in newer initiatives. 
  • Some examples of undoing changes include the Bears Ears National Monument and reenacting some requirements meant to reduce the amount of mercury produced in coal burning power plants.
