The President of an outdoors company called Patagonia said everyone in the Trump administration knows climate change is happening, yet they do nothing about it and fall in line for big oil. He says they are evil.

 

Over 90 degrees 350 miles north of the arctic circle recently.

 

No such thing as global warming, no need to push for higher fuel economy.

they are beholden to big oil and the fossil fuel industry much to the detriment of our planet. No morals.

I gave Obama "Kudos" when he raised fuel economy standards even though the auto manufacturers pushed back. 

Obama did compromise by giving them plenty of time to meet the standards.

I remember Ford brought one of their European cars to the U.S. since it was already meeting the standards. I believe it was the Ford C-Max Hybrid (plug-in optional).

It was surprising to learn Ford was ending the C-Max. 

Why are Republicans against clean air?

One of the planned side effects of rolling back air, water, and safety standars is to kill off the populace before retirement. All of the onstant lying about it is so people wont realize its being done.
So it begins.

I'm always hearing conservatives say President Obama did nothing for eight years, so why is it keeping Lord Smallhands busy undoing everything? *laughing*

30 years ago Al Gore warned the World we were changing the climate and the results would be catastrophic.

 

Republicans made sure nothing was done because they claimed it wasn't happening, we weren't causing it, and even if it was and we were, it would cost too much to fix it and require the 1% to pay more taxes.

 

Now sea levels are rising causing horrific flooding, destruction from violent storms is at record levels and unprecidented forest fires are raviging the West.

 

Make sure you never forget who put us in this situation. That's where the money is to fix it.

And once again, we go backwards rather than forwards. Came as NO surprise to me seeing how deep Trump is in bed with big oil. We out west once again, and for the forseeable future will have smoky summers thanks to much worsening climate change. Summers in the Pacific Northwest and much of California, Colorado and other places are nothing like what they used to be, and its clear, it's only going to get worse. Water will become the new oil on the planet, and that is well underway. Countries and cities are running out of water. And this will only make things worse. Much worse. The President of an outdoors company called Patagonia said everyone in the Trump administration knows climate change is happening, yet they do nothing about it and fall in line for big oil. He says they are evil.
