I suspect that since Trump is 70 years old, he’s in a position where he figures that if climate change is going to put a bunch of coastline underwater, cause droughts and water shortages in some parts of our country, and flooding in other parts (hurting agriculture either way), he’ll be long dead before severe effects occur.

Therefore, he’s going to get in bed with the climate deniers and the fossil fuel industries, because that’s far more lucrative for him.

What we need to hope is that our young people — who could see these effects in their lifetime — step up to the plate and demand action.
