Trump’s 2009 Call for Serious Climate Action

No, I’m not making this up.

On the eve of the Copenhagen conference, business leaders published an open letter demanding urgent climate action. The letter was  signed by Donald Trump along with Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric.  Here’s some of the language of the letter:

“We support your effort to ensure meaningful and effective measures to control climate change, an immediate challenge facing the United States and the world today. Please don’t postpone the earth. If we fail to act now, it is scientifically irrefutable that there will be catastrophic and irreversible consequences for humanity and our planet.

“We recognize the key role that American innovation and leadership play in stimulating the worldwide economy. Investing in a Clean Energy Economy will drive state-of-the-art technologies that will spur economic growth, create new energy jobs, and increase our energy security all while reducing the harmful emissions that are putting our planet at risk.”

I’m going to forego any editorial comment.  You can see the full letter and list of signatories here.

    1. Over the years, Obama evolved on the issue of gay marriage and so it seems likely that Trump grew in knowledge and evolved on climate change. Given what we know today, Trump is definitely the better candidate on climate issues, not Hillary. Her climate agenda includes a lot of junk science. She does not know the difference between good science and junk science. So anything she claims or promises is probably false or incorrect. Hillary cannot give us the leadership that America needs. While it is true that Trump has some faults, it is obvious that he is a far better leader and manager who is more qualified to be President.
