“Trump’s announcement is proof that his authoritarian ideas are still not dead and that he refuses to take accountability for his criminal actions. At EPA, we witnessed the power of those ideas first hand.

“Under Trump, we lost four years in the fight against the climate emergency. He rushed three right-wing Justices onto the Supreme Court that are undermining federal environmental law. For the last two years, EPA workers have been unraveling Trump’s toxic policies that were so harmful to our health and our planet.

“Americans saw this midterm election as a choice between freedom and fascism. And climate change was the second most consequential problem voters were concerned about when they approached the ballot box. And they voted to protect their families and their future.

“We still have a long way to go, but the scientists and engineers working at EPA have started to preserve our future and tackle the climate crisis by quickly implementing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act. Let’s not allow Trumpist Republicans to take back our future. Or allow Trump near the White House ever again.”

The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. – Peter Kalmus, out of his mind, stumbled back toward the car. It was all happening. All the stuff he’d been trying to get others to see, and failing to get others to see — it was all here. The day before, when his family started their Labor Day backpacking trip along the oak-lined dry creek bed in Romero Canyon, in the mountains east of Santa Barbara, the temperature had been 105 degrees. Now it was 110 degrees, and under his backpack, his “large mammalian self,” as Peter called his body, was more than just overheating. He was melting down. Everything felt wrong. His brain felt wrong and the planet felt wrong, and everything that lived on the planet felt wrong, off-kilter, in the wrong place.

The Government Donald Trump Left Behind

The Government Donald Trump Left Behind – Donald Trump was elected president in 2016 following a campaign of pledges to build a wall along the border with Mexico, repeal and replace his predecessor’s signature health care legislation, “drain the swamp” of special interests in Washington, D.C., and cut through the federal government’s bureaucracy, all to “Make America Great Again.”
