Do you believe in CLIMATE CHANGE and GLOBAL WARMING? Many Americans believe humans are causing the planet to get warmer while other Americans do not believe there is any problem.

Well with the EPA totally screwed, deregulation on the way, and pipelines already being constructed, it seems like President Trump is on the road to destroying our natural resources.
