“I believe in clean air. In immaculate air….
but I don’t believe in climate change.”
– Donald J. Trump

How can anybody not believe Climate Change?  It is happening. You cannot escape from it. You cannot ignore it.  It is not about making the best business deal, it is about making plans for the long-term preservation of our precious planet and every single one of us has a part to play.  Nobody should be exempt.  For someone who boasts about making his country great again, President Trump’s extraordinary decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement is beyond belief.

In Emily Flitters piece for Reuters today she reports that:

“…. Massachusetts Institute of Technology officials said U.S. President Donald Trump badly misunderstood their research when he cited it on Thursday to justify withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement.”

Just not good enough!  As a so-called world leader he should educate himself better.

Tanza Laudenback wrote a piece for the Business Insider last year highlighting the 10 biggest problems in the world today using data supplied by the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual Global Shapers survey.  And there are no prizes for guessing the top two most critical global issues …

2. Large scale conflict and wars (38.5%)

1. Climate change and destruction of natural resources (45.2%)

Get real Mr Trump … Wake up to climate change!
