Coal Power: Trump

Story of the Day from Strategic Demands’ associate, GreenPolicy360:

With the repeal of the Clean Power Plan, the Trump EPA has made it “painfully clear that they are incapable of rising to the challenge and tackling this crisis. They have shown a callous disregard for EPA’s mission, a pattern of climate science denial…”

 

 

This Trump environmental rollback is a declaration of war against America and all of humanity. The president and his cynical enablers refuse to recognize that global warming is real and getting worse — soon to be catastrophic. Stop this insanity.

— Jerry Brown, June 19, 2019

 

 

An inexcusable indifference to the consequences of climate change

”(Associated Press) Obama EPA head Gina McCarthy said Trump officials had “made painfully clear that they are incapable of rising to the challenge and tackling this crisis. They have shown a callous disregard for EPA’s mission, a pattern of climate science denial and an inexcusable indifference to the consequences of climate change.””

”Burning of fossil fuels for electricity, transportation and heat is the main human source of heat-trapping carbon emissions.”

”Trump has rejected scientific warnings on climate change, including a dire report this year from scientists at more than a dozen federal agencies noting that global warming from fossil fuels “presents growing challenges to human health and quality of life.” Administration officials argue climate science is imperfect, and that it’s not clear climate change would have as great an impact as forecast…”

”House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described the change as a “dirty power scam” and “a stunning giveaway to big polluters.” She called climate change “the existential threat of our time” and said the administration was ignoring scientific studies and yielding to special interests.”
