Trump’s Decision to Pull out Of the Paris Climate Accord Forces Us to Ask the Ultimate Moral Question: Is Human Existence Only a Vicious Arena Where Ruthless Destroyers Compete for Deadly Advantage, Or Do We Still Dare To Yearn For Beauty, Righteousness, Meaning And Purpose?

Trump is out to destroy the human race’s hopes of reversing climate change. He molested women and now he is raping the planet. Trump said women were forced to let him assault them because he was rich and famous. Now he is murdering our future also convinced that he can get away with it.

Let’s be clear: Trump’s rape of Mother Earth has nothing to do with serving America’s national interest. In fact it will hurt us as China takes the lead in new energy efforts. The U.S. economy, in particular, would thrive under the Paris accord. This isn’t about nationalism. It’s about anger at everyone brighter and better than the fool in the White House. Mainly it is about hatred for President Obama.

If Obama was for it, Trump’s against it. If liberals hate it, it’s good. If billionaire white men can make a buck while the rest of the world mourns– go for it! They let me, I’m rich!

Add to this the anti-intellectualism of the G.O.P. white evangelical base, for whom scientific consensus on an issue– say evolution or why gays are gay– is a minus, not a plus.

And if this sounds unbelievable- consider the ugly egomaniac character of the conman in the White House. Trump is craven, cynical and corrupt.

He rebuffed the entreaties of everyone from Elon Musk to the Pope. He ignored scientific evidence that already shows catastrophic beach erosion, cracking Arctic ice and flooding cities. Instead, he cast in with his climate change-denying EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt, and the Koch brother lie monger barons of the world’s dirtiest industries, coal and fossil fuels.
