Climate warning

Climate crisis ignored by Republicans as Trump vows to ‘drill, baby, drill

In the wake of an Iowa primary election chilled in a record blast of cold weather – which scientists say may, counterintuitively, have been worsened by global heating – Republican presidential candidates are embracing the fossil fuel industry tighter than ever, with little to say about the growing toll the climate crisis is taking upon Americans.

The remaining contenders for the US presidential nomination – frontrunner Donald Trump, along with Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis – all used the Iowa caucus to promise surging levels of oil and gas drilling if elected, along with the wholesale abolition of Joe Biden’s climate change policies.

    The report highlights a concerning stance among Republican presidential candidates, including frontrunner Donald Trump, who are doubling down on support for the fossil fuel industry despite the increasing toll of the climate crisis. The candidates' promises of increased oil and gas drilling and the intention to abolish Joe Biden's climate change policies indicate a stark contrast in approaches to environmental issues. The article suggests a disconnect between Republican candidates and the urgent need for climate action, as they appear to prioritize fossil fuel interests over addressing the growing impacts of the climate crisis on Americans.

              This is so bad of Trump and the Republicans. They should be ashamed of their efforts

                Climate issues should be approached with a long-term perspective, considering the well-being of both current and future generations.

                    Trump just wants to prove how fossil fuels lobbyists are powerful, such that they will get away with anything!

                          Venturing more into drilling oil is so discouraging despite the genuine efforts to bann fossil fuels

                              America still continues to drill oil even without Trump as president, is Biden any better?

                                @munene_mugambi Biden has done a good job so far. But Trump ? No.If I was to name people who have no conscience, he would be at the top of my list.

                                      The Republicans should be called out for not acknowledging the climate crisis that the world is in. They have buried their heads on the number of disasters the US has suffered caused by climate change. People should boycott the Republican party!!

                                        @boniface_kuria I agree such leadership either individually or as a party must be condemned with the highest terms possible for neglecting to take care of the environment.
