- “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive”
- “The ice caps were going to melt, they were going to be gone by now, but now they’re setting records, so okay, they’re at a record level”
- “Look, it used to not be climate change, it used to be global warming. That wasn’t working too well because it was getting too cold all over the place.”
- “We have ended the war on American energy, and we have ended the war on beautiful, clean coal.”
In addition to these out-of-touch-with-reality quotes, our President has enacted out-of-touch-with-reality energy policies like removing bans on off-shore drilling, approving and promoting new pipelines, defunding alternative energy research, lessening environmental emission standards for fossil fuels, and all sorts of FUBAR elimination of environmental safeguards. At best you can call the President environmentally challenged and at worse you can see this as it really is, an attempt to support a 1950’s energy policy that is harming our world and blindly continues to promote the production of fossil fuels that profit influential coal, oil and gas companies.
Ignoring the consequences of the long-term effects of global warming or climate change is irresponsible and all credible scientists agree that we have a problem, and something must change before we’re all treading sea water.
First we all have to understand what “global warming” is:
Then we must vote for politicians who are willing to listen to responsible scientists and create policies that are common sense solutions to the climate damage caused by our reckless, unbridled use of fossil fuels. Elect lawmakers who will enact well thought out strategies to phase in more solar, wind, hydro, and innovative energy sources with a gradual reduction of fossil fuels—a challenge, but doable.
The best thing you can do is to become an intelligent voter by researching global warming. Just google “global warming” and/or look at websites like these below and vote for environmentally friendly candidates who care about the future of our planet.
