DAY 69!: Heh heh. 69. CLIMATE CHANGE!

Welcome to SPLINKERNEWSMAX, the news blog that isn't afraid to say what others have said, after making sure no one got in trouble for saying it.  SplinkerNewsMax is not owned by any major media corporation, although we are willing to entertain offers.

Keep your eyes open for my upcoming book "144k: The first 144,000 Fun-Filled Minutes of Trump." (Title a work in progress and copyrighted, patent pending;  reuse of this title or anything contained herein may result in tiny twinges of guilt.)

DAY 69: 
Trump has still not made good on his campaign promise to release his tax returns. Given that we just learned that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, met with the spy banker of VEB bank, a bank then and now under sanctions, one would think the president would be anxious to clear up any misunderstanding regarding all this silly nonsense about Trump colluding with Russia to steal an election.  

Fight Like Your World Depends On It.

Yesterday, Trump took advantage of another opportunity to show off his penmanship and signed an executive order, at the EPA. The order is designed to halt the government's efforts to curb carbon dioxide emissions. This must mean the scientific debate on climate change has been settled. 
Trump has a good reason for throwing the world under the bus - breathing is less important than business. But if you're just an average joe trying to scrape buy, what's a little water and air compared to a steady salary? Unfortunately for us, we're going to give up literally everything in return for nothing. 

The sacrifice of the EPA isn't going to bring back the coal industry.  Coal is a slave to the market and automation.  Natural gas and other energy is cheaper, and the coal industry doesn't need flesh and blood the way it used to.  Besides, this pos order is going to be drowning in the courts for years. 

Another thing the order does not do? Pull the US out of the Paris accords. That's a bit odd. Trump promised his voters he'd pull out of that on "day one." The smart money says that Trump's daughter/wife and her husband talked him out of that.  

Btw, if we happen to survive the first 144,000 minutes and make it into summer, let's do a movie! 

Besides giving uncle Ralph another few months to bitch about 'libtards' and the stupid science, Al Gore's new movie may remind a few people that their world is still worth saving. Maybe even more than coal.  Who knows.

We need more make believe jobs!
"... the President has been very clear that he is not going to pursue climate change policies that put the US economy at risk. It is very simple."
So simple. If Trump thinks there is a conflict between the environment (a/k/a as air, water, drought, life and death), and our economy, the environment loses.  Putting aside for the moment, the steady increase of clean energy technology AND it's contribution to the U.S. economy, just sit with this for a few seconds.  The man who can't accept simple facts like the size of his inauguration crowd, the size of his electoral victory, the size of the popular vote, or the size of his hands - is going to decide, based on facts, what environmental policies put the economy at risk. 
Fun Trump Fact: Climate change a "hoax" perpetrated by the Chinese.
That fun fact was not just a fact when Trump wasn't president.  Just yesterday, Sean Spicer refused to say whether Trump still believes climate change is a hoax.
But Breath Easy, while you can. 
Thank God we have Scott Pruitt heading the EPA, the agency he sued with the same dogged determination a 101 year-old Russian woman eats Dannon yogurt for breakfast. In case you believe a tiger can change his stripes, remember that Pruitt told a real whopper last week, saying that carbon dioxide isn't the "primary contributor" to climate change.  We know that isn't true, because SCIENCE!
It's all good, baby.
Here's the nitty gritty on the Obama reversing order: 
1. It directs EPA to review Obama's Clean Power Plan; 
2. rescind the moratorium on coal mining on US federal lands; 
3. Urges federal agencies to "identify all regulations, all rules, all policies ... that serve as obstacles and impediments to American energy independence."  
A rational person might look at number 3 and start identifying all regulations, rules and policies that impede the development of solar and wind power.  But don't worry. There aren't many rational people left.
Because Obama made fun of Trump's hair, the order also repeals six Obama-era executive orders, including a series of orders that instructed the federal government to prepare for the impacts of climate change.
FUN FACT: The Department of Defense has stated that Climate Change represents THE BIGGEST threat to national security!

A quick plug for my daughter's website, ACTIONABLES  
A great place to get your bit size, concise descriptions on several topics, and quick easy ways to do something about it.
Okay.  I'll be updating this blog post this afternoon to discuss Nunes a bit.  So come back after dinner.  But, in the meantime...
Call or write to Devin Nunes
Longworth House Office Building, Suite 1013 
Washington, DC 20515 
Main: (202) 225-2523 
Fax: (202) 225-3404

Say: I would like to urge Mr. Nunes to step down from the investigation regarding Donald Trump. The people do not trust him, and we deserve, expect and demand an honest INDEPENDENT  investigation.
That's it!
It's 9:50 am.
Good Morning
