On climate change, it's time to start panicking
Global warming has made the news for a number of reasons this week: The Supreme Court rejected a request by President Donald Trump to halt a lawsuit by children and teenagers to force the federal government to address man-made climate change; Trump's Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation took new steps to reverse President Barack Obama's rules requiring car manufacturers to steadily reduce greenhouse gas pollution from their vehicles; former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger denounced those same Trump policies as "stupid"; and The New York Times ran a brilliant piece documenting how, between 1979 and 1989, the world had the opportunity to effectively address man-made climate change... and squandered it.

Hey, Mr. Bozo.

Well, after reading this authoritative "Salon" story.....NOW are you a true believer?

Panic usually doesn’t work to solve any problem.
If one is to use that logic, then it is time to look at all of Trump’s policies.
All are based upon fear and his reactions are very much like those of a panic attack.
For example, before he met with Putin, he sent out a tweet basically saying that no matter what he said or did, those who oppose him will find something wrong with it.
So he already had plans that he knew were going to upset logical thinking people and he was trying to counter it with a pity party before hand.
Then he basically hides with Putin for two hours, comes out looking like he’d been whipped and concedes to Putin like a cowering sad little victim suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.
So there is no way that Trump would do the right thing even if he understood the basics of science and climate.
He’d react in a way that would be counter productive.
It’s just what Trump does.
