In the latest Orwellian logic to erupt out of the Trump Administration, they have submitted a 500 page report produced by the National Highway Safety Administration that acknowledges a 7 degree Fahrenheit increase in average global temperature by 2100, assuming that no action is taken to stop it, reports the Washington Post, and then uses this assumption – ie, that Trump doesn’t care, so he will not direct anyone to do anything about it – as a way of justifying the loosening of regulations that will, in fact, worsen climate change faster.
So, just to be clear: Trump, in essence, is saying, “Yeah, climate change is happening but I don’t care. I care more that my industrial magnate friends are able to make more money more easily, even if it means I’m worsening climate change for every US citizen, including me and my kids, and including those who voted for me.” Of course, the man appears to be incapable of understanding that what he is doing will harm himself and his family, and much less anyone else.
Voting his enablers — that is, every Congressional representative and Senator who supports him — out of Congress in November 2018 is the most powerful way we can slow and stop this madman.
