It hurts so much when my head hits the desk, and yet it keeps happening.

The White House plans to create an ad hoc group of select federal scientists to reassess the government’s analysis of climate science and counter conclusions that the continued burning of fossil fuels is harming the planet, according to three administration officials.
The National Security Council initiative would include scientists who question the severity of climate impacts and the extent to which humans contribute to the problem, according to these individuals, who asked for anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
The group would not be subject to the same level of public disclosure as a formal advisory committee.
The move would represent the Trump administration’s most forceful effort to date to challenge the scientific consensus that greenhouse gas emissions are helping drive global warming and that the world could face dire consequences unless countries curb their carbon output over the next few decades.
I can hardly wait until all of the rich Trump supporters lose all of their expensive waterfront property after the oceans start to rise.
Of course, before that happens millions of poor people will suffer first, unfortunately.
You know when I hear things like this about the Trump Administrations attempts to undermine climate science and obstruct progress in our fight to preserve our planet, it makes me much more supportive of plans like AOC’s Green New Deal.
Some might find it a little radical or much too expensive, but if we do not do something big really really soon, no amount of money will help to save us all from the hell that we are helping to create almost daily.
