There is nothing that Trump says or does that will not be lied about.

This lays it our nicely:


For the past three years, National Geographic has been tracking how this administration's decisions will influence air, water, and wildlife.

It's a quick, easy read.

Environment is a lagging indicator. There will be many books written about this disaster and many people will suffer and die younger and have a worse quality of life.

If you want to get some idea, check out Florida over the 8 years of Rick Scott. The State is now reeling and may be past the point of No Return.

Before Scott the voters had approved changes to start fixing things. They were all done away with.

Proof? How about Trumps own statements?

Coal?
"I will remove two regulations for every new one"
Rolled back MPG

I have a family member who is top-of-the-game attorney for the public interest in the environmental field. It's a complete disaster.

Environment is like...well, radiation and chemicals and cancer. That is, you get exposed to these things and from 10-40 years later (and, income cases, it's passed in the DNA), the cancers and birth defects and other things start manifesting.

The Perfect Crime. No one can ever trace a particle of radiation back to your lung cancer.

No child should be subject to neurological and developmental damage, even if their Trump supporting parents already suffer from these symptoms.

Well, conservatives don't care about children, they only care about fetuses. Besides, having a new generation coming up with neurological damage is a good way for the Republican party to grow their base of voters.

Heard the same thing from another publication, he can pick up some suburban votes if he claims he is pro environment, pretty laughable but like the birthers all he has to do is make the claim and some nut will actually believe him.

we shouldn't believe him at all. we need truth telling and environment loving democrats in office. I am sure the auto unions that rely on the combustion engine can't wait to go to fully electric vehicles.

Rolling back the MPG......carved up federal lands. Pushed coal hard, didn't pass new or increased renewable energy credits....

He is the complete opposite of someone who cares about the environment. His world view is that of a depraved Royal from long ago. Let them eat cake...or, let us take the resources from all those chithole countries and use more and more of them so we can gold plate toilets.
