President Obama’s climate change policies would be undone. Regulations on greenhouse gas emissions would be eliminated. The Keystone XL pipeline would be built. There would be no international agreement to prevent catastrophic climate change.
That is what Donald Trump’s energy policy would look like should he be elected president, the presumptive Republican nominee promised on Thursday before a pro-fossil fuel development crowd in Bismarck, North Dakota.
In a speech laying out his energy agenda for the United States, Trump promised to undo essentially every major policy developed in the last decade intended to slow human-caused global warming.
“We’re going to cancel the Paris climate agreement,” Trump said, referring to the landmark agreement between nearly 200 nations to keep the world from warming more than 2°C above average preindustrial levels. Climate scientists largely consider 2°C to be the limit for acceptable global warming before irreversible catastrophic impacts begin to occur.
This bloviating POS does not care one little bit about protecting this planet for future generations.
Undoubtedly he would invest in air conditioner manufacturing, water filtration companies, and personal breathing apparatus outlets in order to profit off the increased heat, lack of potable water, and air pollution that would surely occur in the wake of his presidency.
The man is a monster of almost comic book villain proportions and if the American people do not awaken to that reality they may finally see the death of America that has been predicted for so many decades, and perhaps even substantial damage done to the planet in general.
I know that sounds like hyperbole but if you are paying attention I imagine that you would agree with my assessment.
