The political atmosphere around climate change has altered considerably in the past year. 2016 started fresh from the passing of the Paris Climate Accord, and ended with the presidential election of Donald Trump, a climate change skeptic.

.

It was also hot, with near record temps, and a slew of costly weather disasters hitting the U.S.

.

After a turbulent 2016, what changes will 2017 bring to the fight against climate change?

.

Businesses will likely play a large role in helping promote clean practices.

.

“A lot more investors are becoming concerned about climate change and they’re putting pressure on companies that they’re invested in to do something to have cleaner operations, to cut their emissions through energy efficiency and other things like that,” said Wall Street Journal reporter Cassandra Sweet, during a discussion in the Commonwealth Club of California’s Climate One series.

.

Companies have been making moves to go green on their own as well.

.

“Some of the big internet companies have made a big push to kind of embrace that for a variety of reasons,” said Katie Fehrenbacher, a senior writer for Fortune.

.

President-elect Trump has been inconsistent in his attitudes toward climate change, first calling it a scam then saying he would keep an open mind following a sit-down meeting with former Vice President Al Gore and an editorial meeting with the New York Times.

.

“If you look at his transition team, and if you look at some of the names he’s settled on for picks for his Cabinet, you have a stunning number of climate skeptics, contrarians, deniers, whatever term you want to use,” said David R. Baker, energy reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle pointing out that Trump’s pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency had actually sued it in the past.
