    But isn't that why we have government regulations against it? The average Joe won't deal with it, so we have regulations to ensure something is done, even if it's something small.

    Without regulations, things have no chance of getting better

    I don't disagree, except the country just voted for someone that doesn't believe in it and a party that supports him. Elections have consequences.

    Had America voted for some guy who pretended to be pro-environment and then did this maybe I'd be upset. But global warming isn't enough of a priority to the average voter to vote on it.

    I am still amazed supporters are okay with this. I guess trump was right. He could murder someone in cold blood on the street and still have support.


    Reminds me of OJ Simpson

    Many of his supporters aren't just okay with it, they agree with it.

    Potentially relevant to the global warming discussion and how a market-based solution didn't pan out as well as anyone had hoped:

    NPR | Environmental Groups Say California's Climate Program Has Not Helped Them

    The state's own research finds people in Wilmington are about twice as likely to get cancer as the average person in greater Los Angeles. That's not because of the carbon dioxide coming out of smokestacks. It is mostly due to diesel fumes, but also the toxic chemicals that mix with the greenhouse gas emissions of refineries.

    Sanchez Hall wipes her finger across the hood of a car and holds it up. "Black dust," she says.

    Given all this, you might think Sanchez Hall would be excited about California's so-called cap-and-trade program, which aims to get polluting companies, like the refineries here, to reduce emissions. But she and others say the state's signature climate change program is failing them.

    "When I first heard about cap-and-trade, I couldn't conceive how pollution had become a commodity to profit from," says Alicia Rivera of Communities for a Better Environment.

    Under the program, California sets an overall cap on carbon emissions. In order to meet it, companies have three choices: cut their emissions directly; buy and sell permits that allow them to keep emitting; or make up for their emissions by reducing emissions somewhere else. That last option is called an "offset" and environmental justice activists like Rivera hate it the most.

    "We don't care if they have a project for tree planting elsewhere," she says. "When are they going to reduce pollution here?"

    Days before dropping to 35% approval rating:

    Obama: Never
    GW Bush: 1927 days
    Clinton: Never
    HW Bush: 1278 days
    Reagan: 741 days, but it lasted one day
    Carter: 840 days

    Trump: 68 days

    What a winner.

    Don't laugh. He finally found something that he's better than his peers at.
