Back To The Dark Ages With Trump Administration


Sometimes only a LA Horsey cartoon can indicate how deep the Trump has brought us back to the Dark Ages and Scott Pruitt’s relentless push against science ~ particularly as climate change relentlessly reminds us that global warming has the only winning hand in a no win poker game where our human existence is at risk: Allen L Roland, PhD

“EPA scientists who do research into the causes and effects of climate change have been put on notice much like Galileo got put on the spot by the Vatican. When Galileo proclaimed that the Earth revolves around the sun, the church demanded that he recant or be branded a heretic. Like medieval priests, Pruitt and Trump do not want to be contradicted by any scientific findings that refute their belief that climate change is a hoax. That is why Trump has also told NASA to stop collecting climate change data from orbiting satellites.”: Frank Horsey, LA Times

“It took 3.8 billion years to create the world we live in; we are now called upon to change course in order to keep it healthy. With enough public support we can generate the political will for governments and local communities to ensure that the 21st century becomes the most hopeful for nature and humanity.” By Morgan Erickson-Davis, Mongabay | Report

This issue is a truly Bottom Up issue and a swell of global voices must be heard from the poor and working class on Main Street ~ whose lives represent the best and hopeful for humanity and humanity.

Nina Turner, the former Ohio State Senator, correctly argues that environmental issues don’t reach politicians’ radar because they disproportionately affect poor communities and because big donors don’t want them to.

The result of especially strong earnings at Exxonwhere quarterly profit more than doubled to $4.01 billion in 2017 is a strong indication of our continued commitment to fossil fuels ~ at the risk of climate change.

  1. Allen: a good article. Somehow, I dissent with you, as the iron hand behind Trump is what the Church tryied to keep at bay the so called “dark ages” are just being called as such by the same people that controls Trump an the USG. The middle ages were the birth of nations and cities as well as the first universities. Europe had to fight against the Mongols and Muslims, the latter under the influence of
    Jews dwelling within Muslim invaders, specially in Spain, controlling the Mediterranean. Southern France, most of Eastern Europe and later on Austria. Those “ferocious ” monks depicted were the ones that supported learning and research. Galileo was a Church protege, but failed when tried to rebate one of the Ptolomaeus postulates, the accepted science of the time. Anyhow, remained under the bishop sponsorship that introduced him before the Vatican science counsil. All available in documented proceedings.

    • Its worth to include the fact that 70 years before Galileo, Copernicus a monk, sustained the the same heliocentric theory that Jesuits followers thaught. It took the arrival of Zani, Kepler and Newton to validate
      the theory

    • JohnZ. when you see fit, you switch side with MSM Catholic smearing narrative. At least, try to find documented facts and deduct comparing notes. Also, and on the inquisition, all popular spreaded tales
      originate from Talmudic sources without any solid support. Besides and curiously, Protestants also had a Inquisition but, MSM seldom or never tells about it.
