Donald Trump’s primary focus might be making America “great again,” but it seems he is actively seeking mediocre or worse status when it comes to one area: cutting carbon emissions.

Britain’s exit from the European Union may be old news, but the aftermath of the situation certainly keeps piling on. As was predicted earlier that this move could be the falling of a once strong union, it comes as no surprise that the so called benefits that the British were hoping to acquire have definitely taken a backseat and instead, are faced with multiple back draws in various areas of production, economy and technology. Britain is still struggling to increase the value of its pound and have a better economic structure.

Their work is often carried out in areas where government and the private sector are unable to achieve meaningful outcomes and involves considerable creativity.
