Celebrate U.S. Environmental Leadership!
What to know: It’s Earth Day, and Americans are celebrating.
The TPPF take: We should celebrate U.S. leadership on the environment!
“Contrary to the entrenched narrative that we’re killing the planet, our nation is leading the world in environmental protection — and the future is looking brighter than ever,” says TPPF’s Jason Isaac. “America has cut air pollution by a healthy 77% in the last 50 years, and there’s no sign of this progress slowing. In fact, our air is so clean that it’s almost impossible to distinguish from natural levels.”

What to Expect When You’re Expecting the Climate Apocalypse
What to know: Some scientists are now linking climate change to negative outcomes in pregnancy.
The TPPF take: As if pregnancy isn’t already fraught with enough anxiety.
“The facts say that this is the best time in human history to be pregnant,” says TPPF’s Katie Tahuahua (speaking from recent experience). “Global maternal mortality is at its lowest rate in recorded history and extremely rare in the U.S. Infant mortality is declining at an even faster rate. Foisting the emotional burden of climate alarmism onto pregnant women (who already face a long list of legitimate worries) based on faulty data is careless at best and politically manipulative at worst.”

What to know: Eco-anxiety is affecting our nation’s youth.
The TPPF take: This is because the media is constantly feeding us exaggerated information regarding climate change.
“In September, the Washington-Post Kaiser Foundation released a poll that concluded 57% of teenagers feel scared about climate change, whereas only 29% of teenagers feel hopeful about it,” says TPPF’s Kaitlin Kramer. “Anxiety about the environment should not be getting in the way of teenager’s mental and physical health and their education.”
