This is pathetic. Something like 97% of the experts accept that there is climate change. Trump is ignorant and doesn’t. He won’t listen to reports from his own government agencies. We will all suffer and the damage will be permanent.
This is really cool. It projects the climate for cities in 2080. I live in Baltimore – it will feel like Mississippi. We have to act now. The damage that Trump is doing is permanent. Sure, a green new deal will be expensive. So was a tax cut for rich people.
Donald Trump says it's cold in the Midwest so global warming isn't a thing.
Meanwhile, the last 4 years have been the hottest in the history of the planet.https://t.co/EvCRVeWrsL

Trump won’t do anything about climate change but at least some states, cities and businesses will. Trump is doing permanent damage to our country by denying the results of the United Nations study and his own government’s report. He’s an ignorant liar.
‘Just a lot of alarmism’: President Trump has placed climate change skepticism squarely in the GOP’s ideological mainstream, with the prevailing view now built on the false premise that climate science is an open question. My latest, on today's A1: https://t.co/WPnk930aUI
