Miljø og klima frem mod 2020

Præsident Donald Trump har i en tale mandag adresseret klima og miljø. Trump gik direkte i flæsket på de mange kritikere af hans administrations miljøindsats.
Ifølge Trump har de etablerede medier stort set ignoreret det faktum, at USA i hans præsidenttid har opnået renere luft, renere vand og en generel bedre miljøtilstand. Det er kendsgerninger, Trump vil dele med det amerikanske folk. Han understreger, at han står for natur- og miljøbeskyttelse og fremme af ansvarlige, rene energiteknologier, mens Demokraternes såkaldte ”Green New Deal” vil ”forbyde køer, biler og fly, ødelægge Amerikas økonomi og knuse de fattigste samfund over hele kloden, der er afhængige af fossile brændstoffer til at overleve. ”
