Trump’s World – It’s Only Make-Believe

“2020 Starts With the Plain Prospect of Rising Heat” – Tim Radford via The Titanic Lifeboat Academy

The UK Met Office, based on measurements and forecasts by the Mauna Loa Observatory, estimates a 10% increase in global atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations for 2020.

US President Trump, of course, suggests that we ignore such forecasts coming from what he calls these “prophets of doom”.  Well, I am happy to be thought of as one of those “prophets of doom”. 

Trump lives in a make-believe world where America is thought of as a great country, everything is sweet and everyone who matters is an optimist. Nothing needs to be done other than to protect America’s economy. 

I live in the real world where America is a pain in the butt, the world is in turmoil – rampant with disasters of all kinds – death and destruction is everywhere and a catastrophically changing climate is increasingly impacting people’s lives.  Nothing can or will be be done and the least important thing on anyone’s mind is the state of the American economy. 

Even so, I would rather live in my real world, thank you.
