    I applaud your optimism, but Trump and the lobbyists will come again, in various guises and on multiple issues linked to the environment, both domestic and global.

    meh - after numerous attempts from pbman to teach me American politics, all I can really remember is his pride in the American checks and balances.

    looks like the checks and balances worked this time

    There's more than just Hawaii pissed off with TTTs environmental wrecking ball!

    Having said that, a lot of GOP states are waking up to the fact that 'there's gold in them thair' solar panels and wind turbines.
    Though the driver is cash, rather than enviromental concerns, the US is going full steam ahead, in pushing for RE, TTTs splutterings won't make a happethworth of difference.

    Can't imagine such a ban even being considered in the UK, where we're all now convinced that we'll crumble like an OXO cube if we're not constantly suckling our Evian Sport nipple.

    There's a piece in the Graun today about how Borough Market is enacting a similar ban as a side note to reintroducing free water fountains. I think they might be becoming more prevalent in airports too. The government might so something similar as a relatively small gesture to show they care.

    Don't OXO cubes crumble in water?

    Another 950 jobs lost in the coal industry - guess Trump's efforts to regenerate the coal industry isn't as easy as he thought.

    Coal power plant closures ramp up in spite of White House plans

    :confused: Trump has harvested the votes of the god squad and the global warming sceptics..... If you are in the intersection, surely the unprecedented number of big storms is gods judgement on voting Trump? or is it still gay marriage and there's some sort of smite lag?

    The "No More National Parks" bill:

    Anti-park congressman introduces “No New Parks” bill

    This means that Muir Woods and other similar places would be open to development. We can look forward to the Westgate Muir Woods Supermall some day!

    Of course they will. It probably won't even be illegal that much longer.
