    Idiots in office. I thought that only existed in America. Guess I was wrong.

    Trump proposes to thoroughly trash science and ignore climate change. The man is a complete moron. He still stupidly spouting that the Chinese are behind this "scam". And the idiotic Americant public is far too stupid themselves to wake the hell up and realize that if this moron is (s)Elected into office, we are fucked beyond belief.
