Climate Change Doesn’t Care if You’re a Rich Republican: It’ll Kill Your Grandkids, Too
DJT just surrounded himself with coal miners and signed a series of Executive Orders to roll back President Obama’s climate change initiatives and, also, EPA regulations.
As all sentient beings know, DJT maintains climate change is “a hoax” created by the Chinese government to give them an upper hand in trade with the U.S. (ignoring that Bejing is literally choking on smog thicker than concrete).
For (not so) good measure, he also wants the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris Accord, the worldwide climate treaty President Obama signed that promises the U.S. will lower its carbon emissions and take other such steps that try to preserve the planet and all life forms on it.
I’m old enough to remember when the GOP valued education. Now it panders to the uneducated and, as such, both uses them as pawns and actively harms them.
Do the Republicans who insist climate change is a hoax really believe it? Or do they say it to garner votes from the ignorant in order to further deregulate big business and keep it happy, rich, and, most importantly, donating?
I think it’s a combination of willful stupidity and unfettered greed.
But the scientific reality is that Republican climate change denial imperils not only our loved ones, but their own, too.
Could you ever be selfish enough to risk the safety of your own kids and grandkids?
It’s becoming increasing clear DJT isn’t the legitimate POTUS.
But the GOP will always be morally culpable for nominating a climate change denier in the first place.
No party should get to risk the lives of anyone’s kids, including their own.
