Forget about “truth isn’t truth.”
Forget about payoffs of porn stars and Playboy Playmates.
Forget about outrageous statements involving political opponents.
Forget about claims of witch hunt hoax investigations.
It is the policies of the Trump Administration that need to be stopped!
In its latest move, the Trump Administration is catering to the fossil fuel industry by relaxing carbon emissions standards and extending the life of coal power plants.
It seems plausible that legal action may succeed in stopping this. And it seems that coal power plants that are old and tired probably aren’t long for this world, simply because of the cost to run them. But these types of policies are clear evidence of the damage this administration is willing to do to the environment and the health of Americans, just so they can help out their friends that make their fortunes from fossil fuels.
If enacted this proposal is going to worsen climate change and it is going to worsen health related problems from coal power plant emissions. It is bad in every possible way. This is about nothing more than sacrificing our future so that Trump’s coal industry buddies can continue to enrich themselves.
