Donald Trump's Insane War on the Planet
Donald Trump is always declaring war on something or somebody, so he can look bigger in one of his many mirrors, or in the eyes of the mob.
One day it's Mexico, the next day it's lying' Hillary Clinton, or the media, or anyone who dares criticize him.
So it's sometimes hard to remember his most dangerous war.
His insane war on the planet itself.
And all too easy to forget that should he become President our already burning planet wouldn't stand a chance.
For not only is Trump a deranged climate change denier, who believes that climate change is a hoax, created by and for the Chinese to ruin the United States.
His platform calls for the scrapping of all environmental regulations, the revival of the coal industry, a no holds barred fracking boom, and the cancelling of the Paris Climate Agreement.
And some of many his tweets on that subject over the last three years, speak for themselves:
And should shock any sane person.
For while it's hard to tell whether Trump is incredibly ignorant, or a tool of Big Oil, or out of his mind. Or all of the above.
And just as hard to explain why the media hasn't made more of an issue out of his deranged position on climate change.
And by so doing allowed him to get away with murder, and convert others to his cause.
Twice as many Republicans are unsure about the evidence of global warming as they were a year ago, and Donald Trump could be playing a role, finds a new survey led by University of Michigan researchers.
One thing is clear:
A man who believes that the greatest threat humanity faces is a hoax, and rather than fight that threat would cheerfully make matters worse, is for that reason alone unfit to be President.
And the good news?
At a time when climate change is becoming impossible to ignore. At a time when parts of the American west have been scorched by drought, Louisiana is recovering from an apocalyptic flood.
And scientists in the U.S. are warning that the flooding of coastal areas has already begun.
For decades, as the global warming created by human emissions caused land ice to melt and ocean water to expand, scientists warned that the accelerating rise of the sea would eventually imperil the United States’ coastline.
Now, those warnings are no longer theoretical: The inundation of the coast has begun. The sea has crept up to the point that a high tide and a brisk wind are all it takes to send water pouring into streets and homes.
“It’s as if the country was being attacked along every border, simultaneously,” said Andrea Dutton, a climate scientist at the University of Florida and one of the world’s leading experts on rising seas. “It’s a slow, gradual attack, but it threatens the safety and security of the United States.”
If Hillary Clinton asks him to explain just one of those tweets, it could help drown Trump's chances of winning the election...
For it really is no joke.
The man is a dangerous maniac.
And in the name of our beautiful planet.
He must be defeated before he destroys us all...
