STOP TRUMP'S ANTI-CLIMATE-ACTION POLICY THAT HURTS YOUR CHILDREN. STAND UP FOR CLIMATE SCIENCE AND CLIMATE ACTION.

CONJECTURE: Maybe Trump's anti-climate-action federal policies are connected with a covert order to him by Putin? Russia with its reliance on oil and gas has been dragging its feet for years on climate action.

"Trump is not just AWOL on climate change, he has designated himself saboteur-in-charge. He has designated himself basically enemy of the people. I’m calling him out because climate change is a real threat of death, destruction and ultimate extinction."

—California Governor Jerry Brown, who has become the face of America's climate change resistance, assailing the president's climate record.

TRUMP EXITS PARIS AGREEMENT

Without once mentioning the myriad harmful effects that climate change is increasingly visiting on the world including the U.S., minimizing the enormous potential economic benefits of the upcoming renewable energy transition, and looking backward to coal, Trump announced that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. He specified that neither the U.S. Nationally Determined Contribution nor contributions to the Green Climate Fund would be upheld. He did not specify the legal modalities of withdrawal, which vary between one and three yearsTrump did say that Paris or another agreement more favorable to the U.S. could be (re)negotiated. More information on the Paris Agreement can be found HERE.

Trump's anti-climate actions, which include attacks on the EPA, NASA and NOAA, follow the extreme right-wing climate contrarians/deniers

Trump's actions abdicate the moral and ethical responsibility of mitigating climate change that hit the vulnerable the worst, and violate intergenerational equity by condemning our descendants to increasing probability of an unlivable planet.

If he continues, his legacy will be viewed as a climate criminal.

What can we do? We have no choice. We must redouble our efforts on climate risk management by supporting renewable energies, supporting cities and states to adopt mitigation programs, writing letters to the media, contacting our representatives to adopt climate action, and protesting.

Begin again today.

  Climate Portal Statement on Trump's Climate Executive Order 

Trump's climate executive order issued 3/28/17 is dangerous. This order if carried out will threaten the health and well-being not only of the poor, but of all of us. This order threatens to make life more dangerous for our grandchildren. This order opposes a viable economic future with renewables and looks backwards to yesterday's economy of fossil fuels. This order violates U.S. climate commitments to the Paris Climate Agreement and will encourage other recalcitrant countries to oppose their commitments. This order could produce dangerous economic and financial instabilities, and is bad for jobs and business. This order ignores real climate science and relies on mavericks and charlatans who push contrarian/denier pseudo science. This order aims at an increase political instability and terrorism, dangerously threatening national security. This order if carried out will exacerbate the worst of climate impacts. There will be no place to hide

Let's oppose this dangerous order, with loud continuous political action. Call your representative and senators.

There is still no choice but optimism. We have to keep going. We can succeed and we will succeed. What will our legacy be? You can help.

CLIMATE PORTAL APPEAL - OPPOSE CLIMATE BUDGET CUTS:

Trump's proposed climate budget cuts to the EPA, NASA and NOAA cut climate science and climate action programs. This threatens us and our grandchildren.

Please call your representative/senators - urge "Hands off the EPA, NASA, and NOAA budgets". We only have a short time to stop Trump from shooting the climate science messenger and shutting down federal climate action.

TRUMP, RUSSIA, FOSSIL FUELS, AND CLIMATEGATE

From Peter Sinclair

"Trump/Russia scandal is about fossil fuels, the carbon bubble, and a last monstrous grasp by the rotting dead hand of the global carbon club...Putin’s election hack showed identical MO [Modus Operandi, Method of Operation] to the “ClimateGate” email hacks of the last decade – updated and rolled out on a global scale."

Climate Portal Statement on Trump and the U. S. Elections 2016

Climate action is multifaceted. Trump can slow some of it but he cannot kill it.

Trump cannot cancel the Paris Agreement. Probably he will try to sabotage it. U.S. national climate action (e.g. the EPA) will be hit hard in the short run. Climate anti-science contrarian/deniers will be appointed, and science will suffer.

But:
The states (CA NY ...) and cities responsible for most CO2 will continue to act. Business will continue to wake up to climate risk. People will continue to put solar panels on their roofs.

Also:
The old Confederacy, Midwest farmers and Rust Belt supporters for Trump will be hit harder and harder by extreme weather. Eventually all will reject the climate contrarian "hoax" lie.

There is still no choice but optimism. We have to keep going. You can help.
