Global Warming: A Serious Issue
Donald Trump, Republican candidate, does not believe in climate change. Trump says he won't do anything about climate change because it is fake. He will, however, cancel the Paris Agreement, which addresses climate change.
"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive" - Tweeted by Donald Trump
To contradict this statement, Donald Trump allegedly asked for a permit to build a seawall around the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel Ireland, so as to protect it from rising sea levels, an effect of global warming. The Republican Party doesn't have much to say about global warming, but most are in the same boat as Donald Trump: Global warming doesn't exist.
Hillary Clinton, Democratic candidate, plans to make climate change a bigger topic of focus in the general election. Hillary is supposedly continuing President Obama's Clean Power Plan.
"Those people on the other side, they will answer any question about climate change by saying, 'I'm not a scientist.' Well, I'm not a scientist either. I'm just a grandmother with two eyes and a brain." - Hillary Clinton
The Democrats want to preserve the environment for the future. Their platform states that, "climate change poses a real and urgent threat to our economy, our national security, and our children's health and features."
