    The people he actually does surround himself with belies his statement that he surrounds himself with the best people.

    As much as Elon would make for a great advisor it would probably be a pretty terrible conversation. Can you imagine Elon, with his pure science based rational thought process, talking to someone who just says literally anything that pops into his head.

    Trump doesn't listen to anyone and you can't trust anything he says so this meeting would be a waste of time.

    Trump will turn around... Like he did with so many other issues. The moment he will, he say that he'd tried. Virginia coal miners can forget about digging, since coal has already been outpriced by shale oil and green energy.

    I heard a sound bite this morning that he was already backing off of the "Chinese climate change hoax" statement.

    Correct. He had a face to face with the New York Times yesterday, which a full transcript is available for. He backed up considerably, which is what myself and many fully expected him to do.

    With Trump, you just have to remember he's a businessman. It has to "make sense", and he will consider it.

    Maybe that's the real hoax - calling Climate Change a Chinese hoax... A trojan hoax.

    Not so quick. This morning we have this:
    Trump to scrap Nasa climate research in crackdown on ‘politicized science’

    Nasa’s Earth science division is set to be stripped of funding as the president-elect seeks to shift focus away from home in favor of deep space exploration

    That decision probably needs to be looked at again. Let's hope at least some of the funding is maintained.

    I'll agree to OP's wishes if he puts up a $1000 Billion bond in case of EM suicide after the trump interview, and OP agrees to front all costs for EM psychiatric damage.

    See how this works ?

    Any science these clowns do not like they politicize through their propaganda outlets, then close down the science because it is politicized.

    The problem is that Trump is a psychopathic liar which means that he will say whatever people want to hear and he feels no remorse about reversing himself (and will deny that he ever changed his statements... he doesn't think he lies).
    Here is a good analysis by Joe Romm:
    Trump fools the New York Times on climate change

    Memo to media: Ignore what Trump says, focus on what he does and who he appoints.
    Why does the Times say Trump has an “open mind” on climate? Because Trump said he has an “open mind” on climate. In fact, he said it six times in the span of a few minutes.
    Pay no attention to the hardcore climate denier that Trump named his chief White House strategist, the hardcore climate denier Trump put in charge of the EPA transition (and who is on the shortlist to run the EPA), the climate action opponent Trump named as his Chief of Staff, the fossil fuel executives and lobbyists overseeing his transition for the departments of Energy and Interior, and the conservative Supreme Court judge he can name who would be the fifth vote to block the EPA’s modest domestic climate plan.

    I actually think the two CEOs would have a great conversation. Tesla is a good news story for American jobs. Trump needs to grab that and further enable Teslas ability to a broader market. Think of it as an EV in every driveway type campaign to avoid foreign oil.

    I agree. Actions not words are what count. All politicians are liars. Some are just better at it than others.

    Propaganda piece by the left. There is absolutely no quote there from Trump to actually support the meat and potatoes of their argument.

    Isn't this kind of journalism what the NYT just fell on their sword about for the past two weeks?


    No one can make the conclusions in this article until a BUDGET PROPOSAL is put forward or an official statement made. Neither of which exist to support the conclusions of this article.


    Liberal FUDmongering.

    You know what? Why not have the Europeans fund NASA's climate research? Or have ESA (European Space Agency) take over?
    Instead of whining about Trump. That's what we're good in (the whining).
