As the political situation in the United States goes from bad to worse and the Paris climate accord hangs in the balance, there is a ray of hope from some of the world’s most important cities including Madrid, Paris and Mexico D.F.
Last week the United States Senate approved Scott Pruitt to head the country’s Environmental Protection Agency where he will roll back as much of Barack Obama’s environmental legacy as the courts will allow.
While New York City recovers from its first major snowstorm this year, and Scott Pruitt may be confirmed by the Senate, there is no denying the warmest winter ever and the medium term trend to cleaner, renewable energy.
In an apparently offhand comment about “Bad Hombres” during a telephone call with Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto, Donald Trump implicitly threatens another U.S. invasion of its Southern Neighbor.
Donald Trump has has lied to the American people and imperiled the United States’ national security. Fortunately, the American system has a number of checks and balances in it and I am afraid that before this is over, the Congress and the Senate will have to impeach him.
I think I finally found the right metaphor to talk about what Trump and his alt right advisors managed to do in upsetting the American election. It was a Heist!
