What’s Worse: Trump’s Idiotic Views on Climate Change or His Idiotic Use of Caps?

The Trump Era Will Only Worsen the Climate Crisis By Focusing on Symptoms Over Causes

There’s no way of knowing for certain whether Hurricanes Irma and Harvey would’ve been as destructive had it not been for the climate crisis, as Al Gore calls it.
