The Donald

Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s website doesn’t list a position on global warming or our climate’s response to that. He has no position that has anything to do with being outdoors.

I found several of his statements online. Some of them are pretty old.

“It’s raining and freezing in New York. Whatever happened to global warming?”

“@whitehouse continues to defend the billions it pissed away on “green energy” failures. Your money was wasted.”

“So I am not a believer, and I will, unless somebody can prove something to me, I believe there’s weather.”

“I mean, Obama thinks it’s the number one problem of the world today. And I think it’s very low on the list.” 09/22/2015 07:25 pm ET

That was a factual statement!

“The concept of global warming was created by the for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive”.

Bernie had something to say about that: “How brilliant can you be? The entire scientific community has concluded that climate change is real and causing major problems, and Trump believes that it’s a hoax created by the Chinese. Surprised it wasn’t the Mexicans.”

I wonder if we’re listening to the real Donald. If you’re nuts as he seems to be, how do you build a business like his? It might be that once you build it and have enough money you can let yourself go and be nuts. Because you can.

He may be nominated but I just don’t believe it. There have got to be mentally stable Republicans in enough numbers in enough states to deny him that. If they’re mentally stable they won’t vote for Cruz either. So someone else could be nominated.

I think he’s P.T. Barnum’s weird incarnation.
