Trump and climate change

Cartoon of 02/12/2018 in CTXT

After receiving a 1,656-page Casablanca report on the effects of climate change on the economy, health and the environment, all Donald Trump can think of is “I don’t believe it”.

For Trump, this issue is a matter of faith, and the data don’t play a part in that. Donald, who is no fool, knows that this discourse resonates well with his parishioners, who are used to denying anything that reinforces their conspiratorial and denialist discourses on all kinds of issues that can be labelled as ideological “competition” issues.

In an interview with The Washington Post he added:

“One of the problems that a lot of people like me, who have very high levels of intelligence, are not necessarily believers. You look at our air and our water, and right now we’re in a clean place. As to whether it’s man-made, I don’t see it.”

Very clever, a harangue aimed at your obtuse to make them think they are smart, special and subversive.

Lout and denialist

Last year Trump withdrew the US from the Paris Agreement on climate change. No surprise, he had already warned.

The Donald, an expert at filling his mouth with words that together seem to sound good, then spouted his usual spiel: “My obligation is to the American people:

My obligation is to the American people. The Paris Agreement would undermine our economy, weaken our workers, weaken our sovereignty, impose unacceptable legal risks, and put us at a permanent economic disadvantage with other countries in the world.

Vice President Mike Pence simply repeated “American” many times:

Our President is choosing to put American jobs, American consumers, American energy and American industry first.

Rick Perry, the energy secretary and governor of Texas, went for generic, joke-ridden triumphalism:

We will be an example to the rest of the world on how to achieve economic, energy and environmental goals simultaneously.

Congressman James Sensenbrenner, was even more primitive:

The president is keeping his promise to put America first.

I applaud President Trump for putting America first and leaving this unfair climate agreement. We all want cleaner air and water, but we can achieve these goals without hurting the country and outsourcing jobs to foreign countries.”

America for Americansamerica first, America first, we are the best, their cheap jingoistic bullshit that hides nothing more than the usual redneck denialist, isolationist and other istic message.

Lampoon adorned with a supposed message of worker advocacy, with no substance, no argument and no trajectory.
