How America Is Deeply Divided Over Climate Chan

A former Trump campaign aide is now vetting hundreds of millions of dollars in grant money the EPA gives out to worthy environmental science and projects each year. It could mean that thousands of science projects are in jeopardy under the Trump administration.

John Konkus—a public relations expert who chaired Trump’s 2016 campaign in Florida’s Leon County—has told agency staff he’s scrubbing climate change “the double C-word” from projects the EPA funds, according to The Washington Post.

In late August the energy and environment website E&E News revealed a directivefrom EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt instructing all grants to be routed to Konkus. If Konkus “has any concerns, comments, or questions on the solicitation,” it reads, he will intervene in the grant process.

Everything is about politics with Trump. There is no human side.

Everything is transactional with Trump. Votes, Dollars, Ratings...it's all currency for him.  If it was all about politics we could probably cut a deal...there is no deal for the people with this piece of work.

I get it the headline is written in liberalese. Allow me to translate.

 

Liberalese:

 

"UNDER TRUMP THE EPA IS MORE ABOUT POLITICS THAN SCIENCE"

(Notice the all caps to make it look more authoritative)

 

English:

 

The EPA will no longer be wasting money on religion masqurrading as science.

The EPA and environmental management has done a great job cleaning up the air and water in Boston. It was a long, slow, expensive process, but the benefits are easily seen.

 

Those are the types of things the EPA should concentrate their efforts on not a cult following. If Trump started cutting the programs you are talking about it would be an issue for me but I have no problem with him cutting wasteful spending and saving tax dollars.

Where is your evidence climate change is a myth. You have heard that 97% of the studies prove that man made co2 emissions is changing the environment. The actual number revealed this week is 100% because the last 3% "could not he replicated" meaning they don't show what the authors say they show.

If you went to 30 doctors and they all told you that you have too much weight, you need to exercise and eat right and drop 20 lbs would you say.. "I think these guys are wrong, I'll look for a doctor who agrees with me"?
