Trump Denies Global Warming, Spews His Evil over the World

On November 6, 2012, Donald Trump posted this preposterous tweet: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."  

These are the ravings of an unscientific propagandist for the fossil fuel industry.  China is a terrible environmental disaster, and the last nation on earth to want global warming to worsen.

Global warming is not a "concept", it is a fact.  What is it about  the measurement of greenhouse gases, including CO2, that the simpleton Trump does not understand?  Oh, of course -- he cares nothing for the future of humanity.  All he cares about is himself.  

And what is it about the physics of the greenhouse effect that Trump fails to understand?

Earth's climate has fluctuated many times over the course of millions of years, and each warming/cooling episode was due to specific geophysical, astrophysical, or biological processes.  These included processes that altered the composition of the atmosphere and warmed or cooled the earth.  Cause and effect.

It is the same today, except that this time it is humanity's activities that have altered the atmosphere, the seas, and the land surface of the earth to cause an episode of global warming.

The physical processes and their consequences for humanity are all understandable to any literate person.  The science is open to all, and anyone with data and analysis to contradict global warming is free to publish papers to that effect and try to convince others.

And so we see opportunists and the enemies of humanity resort to propaganda in a desperate attempt to convince the ignorant, the lazy, the jealous, the disaffected, and the desperate that there is no serious, anthropogenic climate change.

Donald Trump is the most dangerous of those opportunists and enemies of humanity.

Trying to stop scientific inquiry is sooooooooooo effective!
