Put your opinion of president Barack Obama aside, he was a tremendous advocate for curbing environmental impacts. This is due to the staggering evidence of global warming. And within just one year, current President Donald Trump has dismantled all efforts of the Obama administration. Donald Trump has said some absurd things throughout his life and believing global warming is a myth is among them.
He Said What?!
Here are a few idiotic quotes from the man who calls himself Donal Trump.
“Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly”
“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud”
“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
“In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. “
What Global Warming?
The quotes could go on for days. It’s truly sad that a man can lose the popular vote, but still win the electoral college. That is another story for another time! One of the first tasks Trump completed when in office was taking climate change off the list of natural security threats. Bad choice, as we can see natural disasters all over the globe continue to increase in devastation and intensity. To add, water levels continue to rise. This has been resulting in massive flooding in uncommon areas. The destruction has been costing billions in damages and significant loss of life. Just take Puerto Rico for example. Most of the island remains without power and water months after a savage hurricane.
Trumps disregard for climate change does not stop there. His administration has handed out the largest oil and gas leases in American history. He does not support the clean energy plan, so should anyone be surprise with his actions? He has made it clear he is willing to put business before the health and survival of the planet. He continues to display a lackluster concern for global warming effects. Trump has made it clear that polluters have nothing to fear from federal regulations. The EPA is expected to be cut by 35% because apparently there is no need for it. Trump is allowing more pollution and carbon emissions than any other president in history.
To top everything off, Trump doesn’t even believe in global warming. As recently he has mocked environmentalists on twitter about the cold weather. Cold fronts from the north pole swept through the Northeast, bringing with it frigid temperatures. Donald Trump took this opportunity to take to twitter and actually call for more global warming. Taunting is what Trump is best at. He insists that global warming can’t not be real with these freezing temperatures! This goes to show how ignorant he is. It takes five minutes to understand that climate change intensifies and amplifies weather phenomenons. This includes high and LOW temperatures, more destructive storms, and an increase in the earth’s core temperature to just name a few. Climate change can have long-term atmospheric consequences. Global warming is physically changing the geographical climate of the world. While this occurs, the president of the United States fills his cabinet with non-climate change believers; and continues to promote pollution based companies. As global warming continues to ravish the planet, the Trump administration ridicules the idea of climate change.
