    Certainly, because there are many US States that recognize the insanity of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement and are committed to upholding it.

    Newsflash, sky not falling. Have good day.
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    You mean like conservative Texas that has the largest wind farms in the US? No, the costs of wind and solar are going down making them more competitive. And remember your country is not even on track to meet the Paris accords. So get off your high horse...

    Back in the 1970s, maybe strip-mines destroyed entire ecosystems, but for the last 40 or so years they have been regulated to restore what they tear down. They strip-mined the mountain behind my Grandpa's house in the 1980s and looking at it today you can't tell the difference before they started. They replaced all of the soil and replanted the trees. And also most mines in Appalachia are underground mines.

    The irony, of course, is that a lot of "green" technologies such as electric car batteries and solar panels depend on large quantities of rare earth metals that are often strip mined in countries like India and China that have loose -- or even non-existent-- environmental regulations.

    We have a number of strip-mined areas around Texas that you'd never know were ever strip-mined. They even have environmentalists on staff to oversee the removal and storage of the top soil, with a complete plan for restoration, and when the mining is done, it's put back in such a way that it becomes a park or a golf course or something beautiful.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    And when they are used up, they end up in land fills, poisoning the environment even more.

    Yeah, They make a bigger mess of mountains just putting in roads back in Appalachia. They will cut right through mountains and hills with dynamite and cut switchbacks into mountains too large to blow up.

    From what I recall, even the manufacturing process for such produces an inordinate amount of hazardous waste.

    Interesting. Do you have a link or anything?
