Bloomberg View: How Trump can build toward a climate policy 19.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
President Donald Trump’s idea of putting solar panels on a border wall with Mexico, and using the revenue from the energy it generates to finance its construction, is as far-fetched as it is half-baked. Yet a more realistic environmental agenda — one that allows Trump and his Republican allies in Congress to remain true to conservative principles — is not hard to imagine. Since Trump announced his decision on the Paris agreement, more than 1,000 cities, states and businesses have declared their ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Is Trump Launching a New World Order? The Petro-Powers vs. the Greens 12.6.2017 Truthout.com
(Photo: Tarabiscuite ) That Donald Trump is a grand disruptor when it comes to international affairs is now a commonplace observation in the establishment media.

Similar headlines can be found on the editorial pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post. But these prophecies of impending global disorder miss a crucial point: in his own quixotic way, Donald Trump is not only trying to obliterate the existing world order, but also attempting to lay the foundations for a new one, a world in which fossil-fuel powers will contend for supremacy with post-carbon, green-energy states. This grand strategic design is evident in virtually everything Trump ...
