Donald Trump is not a person who relies on facts. And a person who doesn’t rely on facts typically doesn’t believe in science. A humble person will admit to what they don’t know and listen to experts. Donald Trump will tell people who have spent their entire lives studying a subject, and without having any […]

Reality Check: Trump Wants Us To Ignore The Evidence On Climate Change 17.9.2020 Crooks Liars
CNN's New Day has a John Avlon "reality check" on climate change and Trump. "If you're still in denial about whether climate change is real, you ought to have your head examined," Avlon said. "Or you might be President Trump. There are at least 87 wildfires burning across the western United States, consuming more than 4.7 million acres to date. Phoenix has seen a record 50 consecutive days over 110 degrees, while the skies over San Francisco have been choked with orange smoke, making it look like a dystopian sci-fi film. But it's all too real. With the Northwest now containing three cities with the worst air quality on earth, which shows you why comments like this -- I believe in clean air, immaculate air, I believe in clean water. All of those things. I am not a believer in climate change. "...are dangerous nonsense. But of course, President Trump doubled down while visiting fire-ravaged California this week." TRUMP: It will start getting cooler. NEWSOME: I wish -- NEWSOME: I wish science agreed with ...

American Exceptionalism is Another Casualty of Our Climate Disasters 17.9.2020 Mother Jones
“Historic” has become the word of the year for the worst possible reasons.

Oregon State Senator Blames Environmentalists For Wildfires 16.9.2020 Crooks Liars
Well, this is pretty sick. Girod just lost the home that his parents built to the wildfires but finds time to blame environmentalists for creating the conditions where, in his words, "a giant bomb of fire went off." I suppose this equates to some sort of ecoterrorism in his twisted view. And if that's the case, then I suppose to Girod that also makes environmentalists accessories to murder for the deaths of many, including 13-year-old Wyatt Tofte and his grandmother, Peggy Mosso. Tofte was incinerated, holding the family dog on his lap as he drove to try and rescue his grandmother. Lyons, Oregon is just a few miles away from Mill City where Girod lost his home. Source: Daily Beast But despite an overwhelming scientific majority that ties the extent and ferocity of the wildfires at least in part to climate change, State Sen. Fred Girod’s personal encounter with the result has left him only more set in his views... “Climate change is not the problem,” he told The Daily Beast on Monday. “The ...
