    This is just nuts...and Trump claims that he knows more about technology than anyone...

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/25/opini...chs/index.html
    Did Donald Trump give you a lump of coal for Christmas? The President, after all, is doing everything possible to boost the production of coal, oil and natural gas. Yes, Trump's actions are helping to wreck the planet. But Trump and his cronies, notably Mitch McConnell and Rupert Murdoch, know full well what they are doing, making their actions all the more despicable.





    2019 was a devastating year for the environment. The continued massive burning of fossil fuels brought the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide to levels not experienced for millions of years. The Earth's temperature is now higher than at any time since the start of civilization about 10,000 years ago. Sea levels are rising, and we are reaching Earth temperatures that in the planet's history have led to a sea-level rise of more than 6-9 meters (20-30 feet) compared with today.

    This year, we watched terrifying scenes of devastating fires across the Amazon rainforest. We were horrified as mega fires ravaged California and Australia. We cried as Venice, one of humanity's greatest cultural treasures, was brought to devastation by floods made more extreme by rising sea levels. We despaired as Central America's desperate coffee-growing families fled from deepening droughts and hunger, only to be met on the US border by tear gas and CBP agents who took children from their arms.


    President Trump's rallies are full of populist nonsense about climate change. Trump has, of course, famously declared human-induced climate change to be a hoax. He rails against wind turbines ("after 10 years they look like hell") and ridicules attempts to phase out incandescent bulbs and plastic straws.

    He points to thousands of mining jobs that would end as coal mines are closed but ignores the millions of good jobs that would be created with the growing renewable energy industry. Yet Trump's populist pose in defense of incandescent bulbs, plastic straws and mining jobs, masks something vastly more insidious: Each year, the United States now incurs tens or hundreds of billions of dollars of property losses and lost lives to weather and climate disasters.

    What idiot wrote that screed? Sure, Trump's a bloviating, loud mouth, braggard and troll, but the rest of that piece is just hysterical nonsense.

      And yet you support Trump...and you left out such descriptionis as corrupt, the repeated lack of integrity, and questionable loyalty to the United States.

        That's because I don't see Trump as particularly corrupt, or of questionable loyalty to the US. I'd hold up John Kerry as a clear example of the later and Hillary Clinton as the same in the former.

        Lack of integrity? I don't think there's a politician in Washington that has that. Almost any of them would sell you or me out for a sizable campaign contribution.

        And, yes I support Trump's positions on environmentalism over those of the insane, radical Leftist environmental nutters like the one(s) that wrote the article you posted in the OP.

          Massena;

          10,000 years ago, the mile high sheet of ice covering North America and Northern Euroasia was in the process of melting. Those E-Vil humans were only burning wood to keep warm and cook meat from those animals that they hunted into extinction. Plants were starting to recover from the suffocation of too low of a CO2 level that left so many of them stunted.

          If you so believe the garbage that CNN publishes as so called fact, why don't you set the example for the rest of us? Get rid of your house and car. Give all of your money to the DNC. Go live on grass and berries in a straw hut. And finally, don't have any children to place more pressure on the environment. Become a member of http://vhemt.org/ Just live long and die out.

            Then you apparently agree with his personal corruption and his damage to US prestige, among other subjects, overseas. And that is pathetic.
