How the Trump administration is rolling back plans for clean power | Environment | The Guardian

The US is the world’s second largest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions and, under Trump, has vowed to step away from the Paris deal and tear up various climate-related regulations.

If the country doesn’t force down its planet-warming gases coming from power plants, vehicles, agriculture and other sources, the world is far more likely to careen into a challenging new climate marked by severe heatwaves, storms, flooding and displacement of millions of people.

    Volunteer a little time and make a big difference

    I am a former Army and VA psychiatrist who ran for the US Senate in 2010 on a campaign based on a pledge to introduce a constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood.

    Now that the general public is beginning to understand the importance of the issue,I am devoting much of my time to get political activists to understand that the only way to reach their goals is to establish representative democracy in the US. This will require a constiutitional amendment banning corporate campaign expenditures and limiting amounts rich individuals can spend to influence elections.

    I am convinced that the only way to do this is to make support for such an amendment a campaign issue. That way, we can easily see who wants to get in Congress to represent We the People and who want to serve our interests over those of corporations who currently control the US government.

    I believe that it is possible to end war if we can prove that democracy is possible. Unless we can awaken enough Americans to the fact that their government is pursuing an agenda of corporate imperialism that will enslave them along with the rest of the world if not reclaimed by We the People, we will leave our children with a legacy of pain for which we cannot be forgiven.

    Ultimately, endless war is a symptom of a disease that will destroy human civilization if not eradicated. There is no “us” vs “them.” Our fates are intertwined. None of us gets out alive. The question is, how will we have lived?
