Opinion: This is one way Donald Trump has been good for the environment

Depending on your political views, President Trump could represent any number of things to you. Swamp drainer or swamp filler. Make America Great Again or Make America Hate Again. But interestingly, it is becoming increasingly clear that Donald Trump may be one thing in particular: Good for the environment.

If you’re scratching your head on that one, you’re not alone. Given longtime climate change denier Trump’s almost abnormal affinity for coal and seeming total aversion to environmental regulations, it seems improbable, if not impossible, that the current administration would create positive momentum for eco-friendly causes and companies.
