Skip to comments.Editorial: President Trump Risks the Planet

That didnt take long.
Only 10 weeks into his presidency, and at great risk to future generations, Donald Trump has ordered the demolition of most of President Barack Obamas policies to combat climate change by reducing emissions from fossil fuels.
The assault began with Mr. Trumps pledge in Detroit to roll back fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks, continued with a stingy budget plan that would end funding for climate-related scientific programs and reached an unhappy apex Tuesday with an executive order that, among things, would rescind the centerpiece of Mr. Obamas clean power strategy, a rule that would shut down hundreds of old coal-fired power plants and freeze the construction of new ones.
Are there ways to avert this madness? Yes. Mr. Trumps orders will not take effect right away. The E.P.A. will need a year or longer to develop a replacement for the Clean Power Plan. Progressive states like California and New York will almost surely proceed with their own initiatives to reduce greenhouse gases. And then there is public opinion. It punished the Republicans severely in 1994 when Newt Gingrich and his allies tried to roll back environmental laws. It punished them again in 2008 after eight years of denialism and prevarication on climate change under George W. Bush and his fossil fuel acolyte, Dick Cheney. There is time enough before Mr. Trumps ignorance translates into actual policy for the public to make its opposition to this anti-science agenda felt again.

OH! THE HUMANITY!
This just in...
the forecast for tomorrow is that we will have weather.
And the worst part about it is that women and minorities will be hit hardest!!
All kneel! The fake news “science experts” on the “Editorial Board” down at the New Yawk Slimes are speaking! ROTFL! Morons.
Will our side have any response to this ridiculous, libelous NYT story? Or will we just let it lie there, like the Presidents Bush did.

Obama slowed the rise of the oceans; Trump will empty the oceans.
The sky is falling!
We're all doomed!!
The end is near!!!
Woe is us!!!!
It's all Trump's fault!!!!!
Realize that many of the people under 40 will believe this tripe, and will be inconsolable.
What drama queens the leftists are. Wasnt the planet supposed to be destroyed by overpopulation by now or was it the hole in the ozone layer? Every couple of decades they come up with a new impending environmental disaster that we must throw more money at or the world will end. Just think of how many good jobs these extremists have cost people, while real environmental problems like contaminated water supplies have gone unfixed.
NY Times libtards are a blight on the planet!
So sayeth a collection of journalism majors who would fail even the most basic physics course in a real college.
When liberals can’t cope they resort to attacks. Or go into a closet, suck their thumb and cry.
This is great news! I was a little envious of those who would come after me and continue to inhabit the earth. Now I have the satisfaction of knowing that the earths demise and mine will be within a few years of one another.
Oh what a great time to have been on the earth as I’ll be one of its last inhabitants!
Notice, it wasn’t the lovely loud Michael Moore who lives in Flint, Michigan who fixed the water there, it wasn’t OBAMA either, even though he had plenty of opportunity to fix the water if he cared!! It was Trump who just made sure $100 million is now going to Flint to fix the water!!
What are they talking about? 1994 was the year of the "Republican Revolution." Gingrich and the Republicans won a huge victory. And these writers have the nerve to talk about Trump's "ignorance."
