Climate change, a sideshow in Trump's State of the Union

climate change  a sideshow in trump s state of the union

Climate change was a sideshow of the State of the Union but it should be the catch

While climate change was hardly addressed during the State of the Union by president Trump, a few blocks away from the capitol Building the Navy is thinking about building a more than 4 meters high floodwall costing 20 million US dollars around the Washington Navy Yard. This to cope with the rising sea levels caused by climate change.

Instead of addressing climate change president Trump mainly addressed: national security, immigration, infrastructure, works and health care.

President Trump was proud to announce that the fossil fuel boost in production in the US was close to a ‘revolution’. The US - according president Trumps words – was now the number one producer of oil and gas in the world. He forgot to tell what the consequences are from these fossil fuels and climate change.

The US experienced under the presidency from president Trump billion dollar disasters. Fires, draughts, hurricanes and floods causing a massive human and economic toll. Thousands of people are still homeless, thousands died.

The United States also have to deal with climate change

Even president Trumps advisors are saying that the climate risks are rising. More than 10 federal agencies concluded that the whole country is at risk. According to the report of the World Assessment from top intelligence officials released in January 2019 warned that climate change poses an enormous risk. The US has to deal with challenges like human displacement, health threats, negative effects of environmental degradation and yes, climate change.

The State of the Union would have been a great platform to admit that that many US citizens suffer already from climate change. Unfortunate it got not addressed. Fortunate the boom in renewables and therefore jobs are on the rise. The left is looking for a 'New Green Deal’ and the Republicans are looking for a carbon tax to cut greenhouse gasses.

Climate change was hardly addressed at the State of the Union but some people in the audience tried to make clear to the people who watched the State of the Union that climate change should be on top of the list of issues where the US has to deal with today!
