The Washington Post: Eugene Robinson: The world is on fire – and Trump is playing with matches

The terms of the argument need to be changed. I would argue that the consequences of ignoring global warming isn’t some kind of “environmental vandalism on a tragic scale.” Trump isn’t playing with matches, he’s playing with a country sized flame thrower. Global warming is not vandalism. Vandalism implies something that can be undone, painted over, made good again. Ignoring, obfuscating, delaying and denying global warming is more akin to apocalyptic genocide.
