All the major leaders have responded to Trump’s disastrous pulling out of the Paris agreement – Except May!

A whole series of world leaders have condemned Trump’s irresponsible action. They have signed a letter regretting his short-sighted policy. The only one who has refused to sign is Theresa May!

Frightened she might lose someone to hold hands with?

I believe it clearly demonstrates her attitude to the environment. She’s happy to trash the planet as long as she can make a buck or two to plug the giant hole that Brexit will leave.

Trump puts greed before the planet! A licence to pollute!

The climate is warming. There is no doubt.

Human activity is causing it. Our CO2 output from burning fossil fuel is warming the planet.

Global warming will cause mass deaths of animals, changes in weather, deaths of trees, flooding, drought, hurricanes, coral death, fish migration and low lying areas to be inundated.

It is so serious that 200 countries came together to produce a strategy to try to rectify this. They set targets to reduce CO2.

Now one stupid person thinks it is not true because he wants to continue polluting for profit.

It is a disgrace. It is immoral. It is lunacy. It is despicable.

The USA should stand by its pledge and stand with the rest of the world to fight this menace. The stakes are too high.

 

Trump dumps the planet!!

Trump vs the Climate: Which side are you on?

Is he a moron?

Climate change is an ever more urgent threat. 2016 was the hottest year on record. In the Alps, glaciers have lost half their volume. And killer heat waves are expected in South Asia this summer.

Faced with this, Donald Trump is threatening to pull the US out of the Paris climate agreement. In doing so he has turned his back on the USA’s responsibilities, on science and on the welfare of millions of people.

The next few years are crucial if we are to have any chance at keeping the climate safe. We cannot stand by while Donald Trump takes a wrecking ball to global efforts to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Please will you pledge to do whatever you can – starting today – to keep up the fight. No matter what Donald Trump does.

Across Africa, we are already dying from killer droughts. We cannot let one man abandon the climate, when millions are trying to save it (and our lives).

The US is going rogue on climate change – the world must unify in treating Trump as a pariah and not as an excuse for inaction.
– Erich Pica, Friends of the Earth US

Save the animals and trees. Sign the pledge!

Donald Trump – A major threat to the environment?

Donald Trump may turn out to be a major threat to the world’s environment, putting hundreds of thousands of species under threat, promoting major climate change and putting many communities at risk of such things as flooding, drought, extreme weather, hurricanes, crop failures and starvation. This could result in mass migrations of people and mass extinctions of plants and animals.

President elect Trump claims that manmade climate change is a hoax. He is threatening to pull out of the Paris agreement and reverse the Green Energy programmes. He says that he will promote economic growth by returning to fossil fuel programmes (coal, oil and gas), reopen plants and to hell with the carbon dioxide output or pollution.

He is solely concerned with the economy and jobs. The environment is not an issue.

This runs contrary to all the evidence accumulated on climate change. In the long term it will not only be an environmental and human disaster but also turn into a major crisis for the economy. I cannot help thinking that this is extremely bad news for the whole world.

In a worrying new development his administration has asked for the names of all the people involved in the Green Energy programmes and who have promoted Green Energy and been involved with climate change talks. The fear is of a witch-hunt.

Anyone who is involved with the environment should be anxious. If he goes through with his stated policy change, the USA, instead of leading in the clean up of carbon dioxide, will be greatly increasing its carbon output. This could be a disaster for the world and impact on the whole initiative to prevent global warming and protect the dwindling rainforests and animals.

If there is a continued increase in global temperature, created by human activity through the burning of fossil fuels (as most scientists now believe), it would have a devastating effect on wildlife and human populations. There would be radical changes in weather patterns leading to droughts, heatwaves, floods, desertification, hurricanes and extreme weather, melting of ice-caps, a rise in sea levels, changes in animal and plant distribution, death of corals and sea-life, changes in conditions for crops and have a colossal impact on wildlife and human populations.

For nature, already under extreme attack, this could be catastrophic.

This also does not bode well for other environmental initiatives. It would appear that the environment and wildlife do not feature in the world of Trump. All that matters is money.

Hopefully the experts will convince Mr Trump that he is wrong and the risks are far too great.

Hopefully he will not go through with his withdrawal from environmental agreements and a return to dirty energy.

The world is at stake.

Why not read up my views on the devastation of our natural world in my book Anthropocene Apocalypse. It tells the story of what is happening to the planet through our burgeoning numbers and destructive practices.
