Despite 97% of scientists agreeing that climate change is a serious issue, U.S. President Donald Trump is still in denial.
U.S. President Donald Trump has been an avid denier of climate change and the need to utilize clean energy. He has even gone as far as to tweeting his beliefs that climate change is a hoax invented by China.
But according to a recent report by The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists 97% of climate change scientists see President Trump's views as not only ignorant, but also incredibly dangerous to the Earth's environmental future.
The details of President Trump's new "America First Energy Plan" outlined on the White House website makes no mention whatsoever of alternative energy. Despite a massive boom in the solar and wind energy industries, Trump's new plan of going back to utilizing fossil fuels is forcing the U.S. to take steps backward instead of forward.
Not only is the Trump administration taking steps backward in the energy industry, Seeker has found they have removed the vast majority of climate change action plans that were previously posted on the EPA website. They have even gone as far as removing the mention of carbon pollution as a cause of climate change.
In order to help make a difference in the United States and its stance on climate change, we need to stand up to the Trump administration and make sure they understand how important this issue is for future generations. Speak up for the planet and fight back against this science-denying administration!
As our country knows, you have continually denied both the effects, and the entire idea of climate change. But how can this denial continue when so many scientists in the U.S. and all over the world agree that this is a serious issue that will have serious consequences if not addressed?
Our country and the world deserve better than putting even more pollution into the air with the reintroduction of your strong support for the fossil fuel industry.
If your goal is to create more jobs, we ask that you look to clean energy, especially considering that solar power employed more people than coal/gas/oil combined in 2016.
President Trump, we ask as people of the planet that you strongly reconsider your stance on climate change because if you continue with your current path, it is very likely that there will be irreparable damage done to the environment across the entire world. The future generations depend on you and your choices to follow in your predecessor's footsteps and continue to protect our planet.
