Activists melt down after Trump leaves climate change out of his Earth Day message

By Chris White

President Donald Trump’s Earth Day message Monday does not mention climate change but does tout American jobs and the U.S. economy.

Trump’s message touted the president’s land management reforms and efforts to protect the U.S. water supply. “On this day, we reaffirm our responsibility to protect God’s wondrous creation for future generations,” the president noted in his message. Trump’s Earth Day memo didn’t hit the right mark for some activists.

Obama-era appointee Andrew Weinstein took offense to Trump’s message.

“Remember when issued a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day that didn’t mention the Jewish people or anti-Semitism?” he said in a tweet Monday that has since been taken down. “Well today he issued a message for #EarthDay that doesn’t mention climate change.” Former President Barack Obama appointed Weinstein to the Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

One activist writer claimed the president’s message betrayed the real meaning for Earth Day. “Trump’s Earth Day message completely ignores the point of Earth Day,” former Media Matters for America writer Oliver Willis wrote in a tweet that included a link to an article dinging Trump for ignoring climate change.

Others chimed in with similar sentiments. “. you’re bad for the planet because your policies are antithetical to sustainability and conservation, but also you’re full garbage doo doo.

Environmentalists, media pundits, and Democrats often criticize Trump for expressing skeptical positions on global warming. The Washington Post, for instance, claimed in a 2018 editorial that Trump is “complicit” in Hurricane Florence while CNN political analyst John Avlon tried to tie the president’s decision to repeal Obama-era environmental regulations to the severity of extreme weather.

  1. The sky is falling! Well really, it’s the chemtrail dust. Now it is obvious, it isn’t “solar radiation management” to stop “global warming”, it is literally warfare against the environment, to collapse our economic system and impose socialism/communism.
    Too bad most people will not believe their lyin’ eyes, and will die disbelieving the attack against all of us.
    It’s as if the planet was sold to aliens, and they are terraforming it for some other kind of life (alien) form.
    Sounds far-fetched, but the evidence seems to point that way. That or just suicidal megalomania. It sure isn’t to help our environment.
    BTW I saw a very weird kind of mold on my lawn this morning–a white layer of stuff, with the texture of a mushroom. Near some deer poop. Very creepy looking. Probably GMO. Been alive 65, and never seen the like.
    We live in the age of scientific delirium madness. “Global warming” not so much!

  2. The Lefties are really angry that Trump didn’t mention that April 22 is Lenin’s birthday.

  3. Good, I’m glad he didn’t mention this BS, yeah, yeah I know all the Liberal masterminds
    like Al Gore’s ” point of no return ” in 2006 and now the other fear monger DemocRATs
    looking for votes are all back on the bandwagon.

    And now we have the newly crowned queen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, spewing her BS
    and the world will explode in twelve years, promoting her Green New Deal, what an Imbecile !!

    The sky is falling, the sky is falling………………… again

      • The mentally disabled are easily lead,if one can’t or wont think and reason or in vibes in the Kool Aid any fairy tale can become their reality.

  4. As climate change is a Leftard’s made up fairy tale scam,why would a president mention it.

    U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare


    Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.

    At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

    Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

    The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

    Figueres is perhaps the perfect person for the job of transforming “the economic development model” because she’s really never seen it work. “If you look at Ms. Figueres’ Wikipedia page,” notes Cato economist Dan Mitchell: Making the world look at their right hand while they choke developed economies with their left.

  5. If the former director for “arts and humanities” is the principal whiner
    on the missing gorebull$hit in earf day then you know

    of the brainless demonic resisters being for gnd is reason enough
    not to believe in warmingism…
