 Trump ’s wrecking ball replaces  the former President's effort to reduce planet-warming pollution from coal plants with a new rule that would keep plants open longer and undercut progress on reducing carbon emissions, ending  what we already have in place!  Trump's rule will slow the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at a time when scientists warn that countries must rapidly decarbonize to avoid the most severe effects of climate change.'  even though we’ve already put too much carbon in the atmosphere. Like an oil spill in the ocean, it needs to be cleaned up. The sky is one big hazardous-waste dump.'

"Before It's Too Late" in The Sun, comes at the very moment that the destroyer in chief wrecks the few rules the high help. "Climate disruption poses a clear and present danger today, not a hundred or a thousand years from now, as the public had been led to believe. It delivers conditions lethal to humanity. It's not enough just to stop emissions tomorrow. We've already put too much carbon in the atmosphere. Like an oil spill in the ocean, it needs to be cleaned up. The sky is one big hazardous-waste dump."

Also see, on HBO: "Fire and Ice' , which can be streamed at that link---it shows the technology being used right now, to actually remove carbon from the atmosphere.. even as Trump seeks to add more!

His supreme ignorance will end any chance at moving to clean energy, let alone sequestering carbon.

It is not enough that Trump is bent on destroying health care, and wrecking trade, and looking to start a war, and giving a tax break to the billionaires which will make the nation run into a great debt when they Crete a budget to run things, and so much more!

And he is cheered by people who will lose everything they now have.

Already farmers are losing their farms, because of his tariffs, and businesses are facing problems as it become more expensive to get parts, and steel and... everything, thanks to the problem he created.

And big corporations used the tax break to buy back stock and raise CEO salaries, while firing employees-- thousands of jobs lost!

..and pubic education is defunded, and infrastructure is old and decaying ... but ... Inundated by the propaganda and lies from the media and the internet, these ignorant people are the victims of this fascist liar.. who screams 'fake news' when the truth about him is published.

The irony is excruciating.

There's no value in conflating tariff and tax shenanigans with changes to environmental regs. Yes, Trump's an odd piece of work who can't help lying, but he's actually more realistic on climate than the alarmists, who seemingly can't help distorting (that is, lying about) what non-activist scientists report. Scaring the children and the constitutionally nervous (which apparently includes the pope and California bishops) does a disservice to all. "Clean" energy is seriously misrepresented by omitting the environmental damage associated with the mining, land clearing, operation, and eventual decommissioning it requires.
