Trump on Science

Trump on Science
Anti-vaxxer and GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump believes climate change is a Chinese hoax meant to make American industry less competitive and reduce the effectiveness of his own hairspray. Mr. Trump’s campaign is so anti-science that Scientific American magazine (founded 1845)  published a column noting that, in politics, “facts have become an undervalued commodity”:

“When the major Republican candidate for president has tweeted that global warming is a Chinese plot, threatens to dismantle a climate agreement 20 years in the making and to eliminate an agency that enforces clean air and water regulations, and speaks passionately about a link between vaccines and autism that was utterly discredited years ago, we can only hope that there is nowhere to go but up.”

— “Donald Trump’s Lack of Respect for Science Is Alarming,” Scientific American

Mr. Trumps’ words may deride global warming, but his actions tell another story. He wants permission to build sea walls to protect his coastal golf course in Ireland from sea level rise caused by climate change.

Snow in DC; Global Warming Deniers Rejoice

Snow in DC; Global Warming Deniers Rejoice

It’s snowing in the District of Columbia.  A  foot of snow is on the ground and it’s not even winter yet.  President Obama couldn’t even use his helicopter after returning from the failed Copenhagen climate change summit. He traveled from Andrews Air Force Base to the White House by car.

Climate change denial is a growth industry among those who don’t believe in evolution, either. Global Warming skeptics see a massive conspiracy involving UN black helicopters or Hollywood Jews, little green men, or mad scientists.  Those with a vested interest in the status quo are glad to support them. Many who deny anthropogenic global warming are funded by huge corporations that grow rich by generating greenhouse gasses (more here).
