California governor Jerry Brown has had to take the reins to right California’s ecological wagon as Trump spooked the horses and left it careening toward a mountain bend. Old West movie stylz. In a nut-shot to Trump, Brown has announced plans to have California host a Global Climate Summit this summer. Not to mention the fact that he has already announced that California — the 5th largest economy in the world — will abide by, and exceed the goals set by the 2016 Paris Climate Accord.
Donald Trump has completely dropped the ball for America where US climate maintenance is concerned.
He’s hired a director of the Environmental Protection Agency who vowed years before to destroy the agency, and has sued it to do just that.
“For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn.
Now, as head of the agency, he it taking counsel from Oil Industry executives and has slashed regulations that protect Americans from their air and water poisoned by corporations.
Below, a TV interview Brown gave to a hostile reporter. He handled himself with, dare I say, Presidential demeanor? And, no, I don’t think Jerry will or WOULD run for President in 2020. The right will just have to continue looking for the Donkey to pin the target on for now. Jerry will retire to legend and mountains of gratitude from his constituents when his next term runs out.
Since our Executive and Legislative branches of government have completely let us down, it is up to Democratic Governors of the states with more than 4 million more voters than the Right Wing Red State Confederacy to save all out butts.
