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.https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2024/jan/18/trump-republican-rivals-climate-crisis

    This really raises questions about the future direction of U.S. environmental policies and the nation's role in global efforts to combat climate change.

      Its clear Trump does not care about saving the earth, he only thinks of himself, the world does not need a leader like him

          @elizbeth_gathigia Such leaders are just there for their own interest without minding the well-being of others.

            @esther_wanjiku_785 This is shameful, leaders must take responsibility and take care of the environment.

            This is a concerning lack of prioritization for environmental sustainability. Such policies risk exacerbating the challenges posed by climate change, undermining global efforts to address the crisis and transition towards cleaner, renewable energy sources.

              @princess_nel_268 US authorities must improvise a way to counter check campaign policies and manifesto to ensure they aligned with climate action and preservation.

              Trump setting the worst precedent for a former president and front runner in this year's elections. Quite insane

                @Kevin Totally unacceptable, Trump must reconsider this thought.

                It's concerning & disappointing that the climate crisis continues to be ignored by some Republican politicians despite the overwhelming scientific evidence indicating its severity and urgency!

                    This sounds absurd, leaders must stop living in denial of climate change effects when there are written all over our faces. Supporting drilling of oil must be climinalized, while voters have to make the right choices.

                      @joseph_githinji I completely agree. It's unacceptable for leaders to continue living in denial of the effects of climate change when the evidence is all around us.
