Influential Trump advisor and climate change denier Steven Bannon could (finally) get the boot after dissing white nationalists in a freewheeling interview

Al Gore is back with a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth. Ten years on, what have we learned about climate change and those who decry it as a myth?

Donald Trump has finally made up his tiny mind. He will pull the US out of the Paris climate accords. Congratulations, Trump voters. You got your wish.

Numerous reports published this week have raised the specter that Donald Trump's White House will move to exit the Paris Climate Agreement, or at the very least, downgrade the country's commitment to the Agreement.

With insiders predicting Donald Trump's senior advisers will aim to decide whether the United States will stay a part of the Paris climate agreement or not by Tuesday, a growing number of unlikely climate allies have arisen, including Washington's new power-couple, JIvanka, as well as officials from fossil fuel companies such as Exxon and Shell.

If you're a thinking person, you know that the USA was once a wonderful utopia of happiness, economic prosperity, equality, and a tremendously high quality of life — maybe 30 years or so ago, maybe 40 or 50, maybe 100. I don't know when, but I do know one thing — it was once a paradise like you can't even imagine today

Solar power growth was more dramatic than almost anyone expected during the Obama administration. That was largely due to global factors — incentives in other countries that ramped up demand in those countries, a subsequent burst in manufacturing capacity (especially in China), and the dramatic drop in solar panel costs that resulted (globally)

If you haven't heard, Steve Bannon's ideological obsession that is so far guiding Donald Trump's presidency* is that federal government administration and regulation is somehow a cancer to our society. This ideological obsession is idiotic, and it shows how far an obsession with ideology detached from reality can take someone

As noted in an article earlier today, Steve Bannon reportedly said in 2013: “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.” He apparently described himself as a Leninist to Ronald Radosh, an adjunct fellow at the Hudson Institute. There seems to be a lot of evidence Bannon was telling the truth in that case

We knew that if Republicans took control of the government, it would be a disaster for the environment. Bill McKibben (and RedGREENandBlue) are disappointed at what's coming out of Washington, but not surprised

The most simplistic — but I think quite valid — way I can find of describing the differences is that there are 1) moderate "small government" Republicans, 2) extremist anti-government Republicans with shallow ideological perspective but who actually like social support systems and basic societal protection (just don't realize this until it touches their lives), and 3) extremely extremist Republicans who think the whole system needs to be destroyed to some degree or another

If you've been paying close attention to US politics this past month, I probably don't need to tell you what's been going on. If you haven't been, well, I can't even find the word to describe it — it's been a mix of insanity, corruption, hypocrisy, lies (aka "alternative facts"), irony, fictional history, idiocy, chaos, and looming disaster. In other words, just another month in the life of a con man from Queens

Multiple people have asked me to chime in on the Elon Musk and Donald Trump "partnership." The requests have popped up for months. I've also noticed a lot of commentary — on Twitter, here on CleanTechnica, and elsewhere — that implies Elon has turned evil or is sacrificing his morals by working with Trump

The far-right website, Breitbart News Network, is the most viewed U.S. conservative news, opinion, and commentary website. Its vertical integration emphasizes three prominent areas: Big Government, Big Journalism, and Big Hollywood. Breitbart's executive chairman, Steve Bannon, aligned the site so specifically toward a Trump vision of the world during the 2016 Presidential election that employees began to raise concerns about it being little more than a "fan club" for Trump. Moreover, the right-wing outlet has been accused by some as being a hate site. Now that Bannon has been announced as Trump’s chief strategist, there are fears this U.S. conservative news venue will be little more than a mouthpiece for Trump's policies, including those detrimental to climate change actions within the Paris Agreement
