Trump’s Business Council היועצים הכלכליים של טרומפ מושקעים ב...אנרגיה ירוקה

 Donald Trump by Gage Skidmore

טרמפ מינה לעצמו מועצת יועצים כלכליים שכמובן ממוצע הרכוש שלהם הוא מילייארד לפחות. לא ממש מפתיע משום שהקבינט שלו בעל שווי פיננסי דומה. (האם אלו יחשבו קודם כל על פועליי מכרות הפחם?)
הכחשת שינויי האקלים של טרמפ אינה דבר חדש (שינויי האקלים הוא מזימה סינית). ולזה מצורף קבינט של אנשיי דלקים מאובנים ומכחישייי אקלים.
ולמרבה ההפתעה צוות יועצים אשר מושקע במיליארדים באנרגיות מתחדשות ובחיסכון באנרגיה לא רק אלון מוסק מטסלה

From BlackRock to General Motors to Wal-Mart, the members of Trump’s business council are all in on renewables.

If Donald Trump asked the executives sitting on his business advisory council for advice about energy policy, what kind of answer would he get? 

Judging by the billions of dollars those executives are pouring into renewables and carbon reduction programs, they'd probably tell him to emphasize the clean stuff.

In other words, the exact opposite of what he's doing now.
