  1. Unfortunately, this may be too much to expect from the Trump Administration. Trump’s appointment of an opponent of the EPA, his assertion in the face of mounting evidence that climate change is real and not a “Chinese Hoax” and other ignorance of reality in the face of scientific evidence. A recent TV documentary has illustrated to benefits of renewable energy sources (primarily wind and solar) to helping clear the smog from Chinese cities. For a nation which brooks no dissent and is dominated by Communist Party ideology, even the reality of climate change has penetrated Chinese society. If this reality can penetrate Chinese ideology, there should be no rational reason why it can’t do so here in the U.S., but with the incoming administration, hopefully learning as it goes, perhaps this reality will take root here.
