Ideology Trumps science — President exits Paris climate pact

Last year was the hottest in recorded history. Our globe is warming — but today our President, cool to fact and full of hot air, announced he’s withdrawing the United States from the 2015 Paris accord on climate change. You’ll find at the usual places a glut of reports on his decision. And at the National Academies of Science, you’ll find a just-released document on climate science that you can download.

My initial reaction? Reality and Donald Trump do not exist in the same time-space continuum.

Here’s a song by the Desert Rose Band that serves as a comment on the situation. The performance features guitar virtuoso John Jorgenson’s powerful 12-string guitar.
