Thirteen years of record floods on midwest rivers and we want to deny climate change. We have a river gauge since 1910 which has measured floods, and 7 out of the 10 highest floods have happened in the last 13 years. Now we have an administration which says there is no science for climate change, and that we will give a blank check to oil and coal. Thank goodness that natural gas has become so affordable, but in the meantime I will be cleaning up after one more flood, and spending thousands of dollars to repair and replace the damage. The Cafe standards on motor vehicles were removed so the demand for more oil will remain high, and the average American will spend thousands more to feed the oil companies as they take their wealth from America off shore to shelter that money from taxes which will have to clean up the messes that their products have and continue to impose on America. Sadly, the Trump voters do not care because a white man is now denying that the civil war was ever necessary, and elevating Andrew Jackson as a role model. We can always count on hate and racism hurting our self interest long term.
