There has been a troubling news for those who believe in Climate Change and see it as one of the biggest issues that our generation faces as the transition team of the president-elect Donald Trump has circulated a list of questionnaire for the employees of Energy Department to answer. One cannot help but notice the target precision as the questions are specifically modeled out to single out those who have worked in the areas regarding climate change and its reports. The most notable questions from the questionnaire seek out to find if the workers of D.O.E (Department of Energy) have attended the climate change policy conferences. Even with former transition leader McKenna reassuring that there is nothing amiss with the questions and the rights of the transition team to ask those questions, one cannot help but wonder about the motivation behind asking those questions and the results the answers would bring regarding the president-elect's stance on climate change. Other questions from the list also revealed the transition team's focus on nuclear energy and its commercialization, hinting at the direction of the path the nation will take regarding energy for the oncoming 4 years
Knowing what Trump has professed through out his campaign when asked about his stance on Climate Change and his planned policies, or the lack thereof, regarding Climate Change, I found this news extremely unsettling and troubling.
