Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement designed to curb global warming surprised many. Trump hasn’t denied the fact of global warming. He hasn’t even denied that man is contributing to it. He simply doesn’t care. It seems Donald Trump is more interested in making the country profitable instead of making America a healthy place to live.
On June 14th, Trump will turn 71 years old. The average life expectancy for a man in America is 76 years old. Given Trump’s weight, eating habits, and stress, it seems he’ll by lucky to make it to 76.
If he does live to be 100 it seems that he’ll be able to watch his precious property Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, become submerged in ocean water. In 30 years it is predicted that the grounds of Mar-a-Lago will be under at least a foot of water for 210 days a year because of tidal flooding along the intracoastal water way.
Ironically, the president has reportedly proposed to eliminate the budget for a federal program called Sea Grant which designed to help the area deal with the effects of a changing environment.
In fact, Politico reported last May that Trump’s company had applied to build a protective wall near the latter seaside property, citing “global warming and its effects.”
Trump is drowning in political turmoil. His properties are being submerged in ocean water and he doesn’t seem to be aware of the signs that caution the swimmers.
Perhaps he never expected to be elected President, so every day that he serves is more than than he expected.
