Climate Change Samirah barr

Once during an interview with a Scottish reporter for the newspaper, Trump talked about how there's a proposal to build a wind farm, but he wants the proposal blocked because fog that covered the area wouldn't be a problem much longer. He also doesn't believe global warming is real.

The cabinet nominee— Scott Pruitt. In charge of climate change doesn't necessarily agree with Trump that Climate change is a hoax. In fact, he believes humans are the main cause of global warming, and the U.S needs to reduce the use of fossil fuels. "I do not believe climate change is a hoax...Science tells us the climate is changing and human activity in some matter impacts the change. "

Due to the extreme heat temperatures, icebergs are melting at a faster pace.

Due to the overuse of fossil fuels and pollution, there's a hole in the ozone layer.

Animals that are used to cold environments and have adapted to their lifestyles, are now becoming extinct due to Global Warming because their homes are slowly being destroyed.

Coral reefs play an important role in the chain of life. They protect coastlines from waved and tropical storms but coral reefs are also slowly dying due to global warming.

I believe that within the next four years of Trump's presidency global warming won't improve that much, since Trump still wants to create more jobs using fossil fuel Pruitt will allow that being the cabinet nominee. Also, since Trump and Pruitt are acquainted it is possible Scott can convince manufacturers to lower there standards with the use of fossil fuels which will only cause more pollution.
