REPORT: US Along With Russia, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait Blocked the Endorsement of Climate Study at UN Climate Change Conference

Great.

Many called out President Donald Trump’s unyielding devotion to oil and gas.

The Trump administration’s inaction has worsened domestically as well. The President publicly doubted the conclusions reached by 13 agencies of his own government in the Fourth National Climate Change Assessment, which also warned of the urgent need for action lest the United States economy decrease by 10%.

The president’s justification didn’t inspire much hope:

“You’re going to have to have China, and Japan, and all of Asia, and all of these other countries – you know, [the report] addresses our country. Right now, we’re at the cleanest we’ve ever been, and that’s very important to me. But if we’re clean but every other place on Earth is dirty, that’s not so good. So, I want clean air, I want clean water – very important.”

Fortunately, future Democratic lawmakers are gearing up in an effort to save the planet from the President. Incoming Democratic Representative from New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has made passing sweeping climate change reforms – or a Green New Deal – her top priority, and support for the effort within the House of Representatives is quickly building.

Let’s hope that Republican support for these efforts rises before the tides do.
