    Planet Earth at Verge of Destruction

    DONALD Trump, if he is not forgotten like a bad nightmare, will probably be remembered as the President Who Kept His Deadly Campaign Promises. Not that politicians are normally liars. Once in office, a political leader finds himself no longer just the leader of his political party but the leader of the whole country. In the case of the US, the President of the United States is leader of the so-called free world; anyway, a leader of the whole world.
    It is thus simply weird that President Trump should adopt as the theme and policy of his administration America First. It is as though America were just a former colony of itself, or just like the Philippines. Don’t you remember a Philippine president who once had a similar policy? The Carlos P. Garcia administration’s policy was “Filipino First,” but unlike Trump’s, Garcia’s slogan did not have an overarching application. Garcia called on the private sector to substitute imported goods with Philippine-made ones, and for the public to patronize the latter. That was about all. It would take Garcia’s successor, Diosdado Macapagal, to change the country’s National Day from July 4 to June 12. It would take Macapagal’s successor, Ferdinand Marcos, to assert the country’s sovereignty over the American military installations in the Philippines and considerably reduce the territory occupied by them. And it would take a volcanic eruption of global magnitude for the US to remove its military installations from the country willingly.
    A fight fit for a superpower
    The US during its last presidential election campaign was yet the only superpower in the world. It therefore surprised everybody when President Trump made good on his campaign promise to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The struggle to save the planet from annihilation and humanity from extinction is obviously and surely a fight fit for a superpower. How can Trump be in denial of the conclusion of all the world’s scientists worthy of being called scientists that the dangers of climate change have been bought about by human activity, but that timely action by the peoples, governments and nations of the world can save the planet from annihilation and humanity from extinction? No, President Trump is not stupid. I fear that one cannot exculpate Trump from being possibly the one whom Nostradamus prophesied as the anti-Christ, the Devil himself, as shown by his rendering Mr. Muller incapable of clear and courageous English; his turning of the US Senate and the Attorney General into his obsequious lapdogs; mesmerizing the pious denizens of the Bible Belt to turn blind to his serial immoralities, and spellbind others with the hocus-pocus he makes on his tax returns, and forgetful that because all Americans are immigrants or descendants of immigrants, except for the American Indians, Trump’s immigration policies lack heart and reason.
    Edicts of Mammon
    Trump has not simply withdrawn from the Paris Agreement. He has championed the Edicts of Mammon as drawn up by publicists of the fossil fuel companies. He has even appointed representatives of those companies to the helm of the US Environment Policy Administration, mandating them to reverse the initiatives put in place by the previous administration in fulfillment of US commitments under the Climate Change Agreement. The Trump administration is now also penalizing state governments setting tail pipe and other standards to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It has actively prevented international conferences from including climate change in their agenda and output statements.
    There is no end, it appears, to what Trump will do to prevent anything from being in the way of the US becoming not only self-sufficient in fossil fuel resources but also the No.1 producer of oil in the world. Never mind if the US maintains its position as one the biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the world. Paradoxically, Trump’s position springs from his faith that the technology will be invented to save the planet from climate change. Unfortunately, scientists and engineers doubt that an effective technology can be developed in time before the earth’s path to destruction becomes irreversible.
    There has been recent evidence that the Trump position on climate change does not only come from a pigheaded denial of science, but from a desire to take advantage of the misfortunes of others. Consider Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s starting speech at this year’s Arctic Council meeting, where members were concerned about the effects of the rapidly shrinking levels of sea ice in the polar region and its inhabitants, except the US delegate:
