Block Trump’s cli­mate moves

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re:

“Trump’s cli­mate de­ci­sion al­ready trou­ble­some,” Dec. 12 Seth Wig­gins col­umn.

Seth Wig­gins is right about Donald Trump and the un­sta­ble heated planet he will lead us to. Gut­ting en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tions ap­pears to be his higher pri­or­ity with his ex­pected as­sault on the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency and re­ject­ing the land­mark Paris cli­mate change treaty. Cer­tain mem­bers of our Congress should for­sake “party loy­alty” for a loy­alty to the peo­ple, water, land and clean air of our na­tion and in­deed the world. For cli­mate change de­niers, it is time for them to pull their heads out of the sand of ig­no­rance and avoid­ance and open their eyes to what is hap­pen­ing in the Arctic, the melt­ing ice cap in Green­land, the rise in ocean lev­els, and the on­set of ever more de­struc­tive weather events ex­ac­er­bated by cli­mate change.
