Morano: "Bannon served as Trump's ear to the grass roots and helped him battle the inevitable forces of the Washington establishment that pressure every president to back away from campaign promises that DC insiders are uncomfortable with."
Bannon departure will leave a void at the White House that will likely be filled by someone more accommodating to the DC Establishment. And that is bad news for climate skeptics. He will be missed."
Richard Muller: "When Trump announced our withdrawal from the Paris Accords, I felt that he had done the right thing...the Paris accords did almost nothing to stop the increase. Alas, most of that increase will come from China, India, and the developing world, not from the US or Western Europe. To be effective, anything we rich nations do must set an example that the developing world can follow. That means it must not be expensive; if it isn’t profitable, it isn’t sustainable. There are three things we need to do to slow and stop global warming: More extensive energy conservation. Encourage nuclear power. Shale gas as an alternative to coal. A gas plant emits ½ to ⅓ the CO2 of coal. Everything else is just frosting. We tend to do fashionable things without caring if it makes sense for the developing world."
Gore: “We have the solutions now. Solar electricity, wind electricity, batteries in electric vehicles and soon electricity from renewable sources are going to be cheaper all over the world than fossil fuels. So we’re going to win this.”
On Trump: “I spent a lot of time talking directly to him. I’ve had several conversations and unfortunately, I thought he would come to his senses, but I was wrong."
