Battle Shaping Up Between Sacramento and Washington Over Climate Action

(3BL Media/Justmeans) — In what might be shaping up to be the fight of the century, with nothing less than the future of life on this planet at stake, we have the 2017 battle over climate change. In one corner, we have Jerry Brown, lawyer, veteran politician, and the longest serving governor in California’s history. In the other corner, is Donald J. Trump, real estate developer and reality TV star.

In defiance of the consensus of hundreds of the world’s top scientists, Trump has ridiculed climate change, suggesting that it is a non-issue, manufactured by liberals, despite the fact that even the US Department of Defense (not exactly known as a liberal institution), in a report to the Senate Appropriations Committee, considers it “a significant risk to U.S. interests globally.”

Trump seems to be surrounding himself with climate-deniers, including Scott Pruitt, a self-proclaimed enemy of environmental regulation, to head the EPA; former Texas governor and oil man, Rick Perry, as Secretary of Energy; and Exxon-Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State.

Brown, on the other hand, just appointed Kathleen Kenealy to replace Kamala Harris as acting state Attorney General, after Harris was elected to the Senate. Kenealy had previously served in the state’s Natural Resources Division and fought to enforce regulations on motor vehicle carbon emissions.
