On Monday, Donald Trump literally made the United States an empty chair when it comes to climate change.  He and his aides offered up lame excuses. Then rump voiced an even lamer view of what should matter in the wake of this global environmental crisis. I talk about it in my most recent article for Torchlight Media.

Torchlight Media: The Schoolyard Bully Pulpit Part 2 – The Media Misses the Boat
