Bernie Sanders said it well, “Trump’s belief that climate change is a ‘hoax’ is not just embarrassingly stupid, it is a threat to our entire planet.”
Indeed, unlike tobacco, fossil fuels don’t just kill one at a time, they threaten the lives of everyone on the planet! Clearly, Trump doesn’t get it. Either that or he gets it and doesn’t care. Since we don’t know how heavily invested in the fossil fuel industry, we might well ask is he making even more money by supporting the coal industry and pretending climate change is a “hoax”? Certainly, his most recent decisions seem to favour business and large corporations than Middle America.
Hard it is to fathom how a father could be so blinded by here and now as to so precariously position his children’s futures and that of their children. Seems money Trumps!
