I used to think global warming was the greatest threat to America. However, my stance has recently changed. I now consider President-elect Trump and his unqualified cabinet picks to be America’s greatest threat.
Rick Perry, the Department of Energy nominee and a man who denies climate change, has requested a list of DOE employees who have supported renewable energy.
Does he plan on commending them for their accomplishments? I doubt it. Is this the beginning of a pogrom? What a terrifying thought! But how easily that word comes to mind knowing that Trump has myriad business connections in Russia and is an admirer of Vladimir Putin.
The thought of Perry running a department about which he knows nothing and Trump having access to deploying nuclear weapons should be enough to unite moderate Republicans and Democrats as never before. Perhaps together they can put an end to this insanity.
