State of shock

Donald Trump, president of the United States!! I am in a state of shock. It is hard to believe that a man with no political experience and with views most consider extreme, divisive and obscene has become the leader of the most influential nation on the planet. I fear for world harmony but perhaps, more importantly, I fear for the environment. Trump doesn’t accept the scientific evidence that climate change is real (Harrington, 2016) and would like to reverse the Paris Agreement (Harrington, 2016). Trump decimated pristine environmental regions and protected sand dunes in order to build a golf course in Scotland (Abrahms, 2015). His actions speak as loudly as his words, the plight of the environment is likely to continue to suffer from Trump at the head of the US government.
