Since this administration will not protect the environment, Congress must. We need to move away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible and make larger, massive investments now in sustainable energy technologies (wind, solar, batteries). This is a 10-alarm fire. Human-made carbon-dioxide is causing the polar ice caps to melt; over the course of history, the ice caps have trapped massive quantities of carbon dioxide. As they melt, the polar caps release massive amounts of carbon dioxide which exacerbates global warming, which results in further melting of the polar ice caps. As water levels rise due this melting, it will cause destructive sea level rises primarily along coastlines of large land masses (continents like North America) because of the large gravitational pull of continents. Hurricane severity, flooding, (record-setting high temperatures along with loss of land that can be farmed), increasing frequency and magnitude of forest fires and other natural disasters, will continue to wreak havoc in the U.S. interior as well as the coasts. We should provide a safety net (money) for miners and their families while providing them with free education to be skilled in development, installation and maintenance of solar and wind energy farms. Or we can just deny science and man-made contributions to global warming.
