Trump, the Savior of the Planet?

Has Trump just saved the planet by withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement? Maybe. In short, Trump has brought an enormous spotlight on the issue of climate change or global warming in a way no one else can. In pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, President Trump has put the climate change debate on the global agenda. In every thriller there needs to be an antagonist; and Trump has labeled himself as that guy and it has worked.  Ok, let’s get started.

Very few people doubt that the earth is warming up and that as a result we're seeing catastrophic weather events around the world. Just look at what happened in Sri Lanka or the disappearing islands of the Maldives.

The goal of the Paris Climate agreement was for the entire world to work together to stop the hitherto alarming rate at which the planet was heating up. The goal of the Paris Agreement was not to cool the planet down, but to at least stop things from getting any worse and to achieve even that; it was going to take the whole planet working together. Until President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, only Syria and Nicaragua had not signed on to this agreement. Nicaragua did not sign up because it felt that the agreement did not go far enough.

On October 5th 2016, just prior to candidate Trump winning the U.S. Election 147 of 197 signed on to the Paris Climate Agreement. With 147 countries on board this meant that the Paris Agreement could move forward.  The Paris Climate Agreement went into force November 4th 2016. The world celebrated.

Under the Paris Climate agreement almost every country around the world came together to work together to save Earth.

Why Trump Saved the Planet

In my view, there are many things President Trump has done that has created an astonishing amount of press. President Trump seems to be a lightening rod for press. When Barak Obama signed onto the Paris Climate Agreement it made the news in passing, most American’s reactions were borderline apathetic. President Barak Obama was so mainstream he barely made the news at all and Americans just got on with their lives. As long as unemployment was falling and the economic prospects were looking up, for Americans it was life as usual.

Saturday Night Live and other comedy shows had to look elsewhere for their material. However, when President Trump came into office, he made headline news every day, in a larger than life way and with every tweet he gave the media plenty of material to work with. President Trump has single handedly made watching the news an absolutely riveting experience regardless as to where one might stand politically. What is President Trump going to tweet next?

So, when President Trump announced on June 1st 2017 that he was going to pull out of the Paris Agreement, the world collectively took notice.

President Trump is either the protagonist (Hero) or the antagonist (Anti-Hero) depending on your politics, but what cannot be denied, without Trump in the story the news is quite boring for the most part.

In any thriller movie there has to be the antagonist which is the opposing force that brings conflict and in doing so results in the protagonist; the hero in the movie.  By President Trump taking the antagonist position in claiming that climate change is hoax perpetrated by China, or that humans have virtually no impact on climate change, or there is no such thing as climate change, this has created a massive leadership vacuum where other world leaders have immediately jumped in. Newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron, Germany’s leader Chancellor Angela Merkel and China’s Xi Jinping  have united together and affirmed their commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement.

President Trump has successfully agitated into action an even greater commitment for us to reduce our carbon footprint in a way no other could.

Since June 1st 2017, not only have countries from around the world re-affirmed their commitment to reducing their carbon emissions but the majority of Governors and Mayors around the US have put aside their political differences and vowed to do all they can to honor the Paris Climate Agreement. At the end of the day the planet is neither Republican or Democrat.

So, not only has President Trump brought the Paris Climate Agreement front and center in global news but he has galvanized the U.S. into action to reduce their carbon foot print in defiance of President Trump. If this was President Trump’s intention all along, then he is a genius.

You never really know what Trump is thinking, he is a disruptor, he wears the cloak of being anti-establishment, whilst being a Billionaire who over many decades has been the financier of the establishment; giving money to the Democrats and Republicans alike, especially the Clintons where he attended their daughter’s wedding. Indeed, Trump was, at one time, a Democrat.

The Green Revolution is happening all around the world with astonishing speed. The Green Revolution is the converting the world from fossil fuels to renewable fuels.

Opportunities for Immigrants in the Green Revolution

As President Trump pulls out of the Paris Climate Agreement the vast majority of CEOs around America are ramping up their efforts in the Green Revolution, to rush from fossil fuels to renewable fuels like Solar, Wind, Bio, etc. In order to sustain the growth of the Green Revolution these new technologies require a vast number of STEM graduates (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

America needs STEM immigrants more than ever, but simply cannot get enough of them from America’s workforce. CEOs are lobbying as hard as they can to get Congress to update the U.S. Immigration laws to make all kinds of exceptions for STEM graduates from around the world to come to the U.S. to make America Great Again. We’re falling behind.

Elon Musk of Tesla has built the largest factory in the world at 1.9 million square feet, which will be devoted to making the batteries that will power the electric cars of the future. Tesla has already invested 1 Billion dollars since 2014 and Elon is ready to spend Billions more. Why? Because the world is changing from fossil to renewables, from petroleum to batteries.

Can you believe that Tesla Inc. was founded in 2003 and now (in less than 15 years) is worth a staggering $48 Billion Dollars? In comparison, the Ford Motor Company was founded in 1903 and is now worth $45 Billion Dollars, less than Tesla.

General Motors was founded in 1908 and is now worth $50 Billion Dollars.  What am I saying here? The speed of the Green Revolution and technology is here already, we all need to wake up and examine how this will affect us.

Tesla is leading the World renewable car batteries which can be charged by solar panels making the fueling of cars 100% renewable and free.

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Yes, America has jobs, jobs, jobs, but they are not in Coal, and to be honest the future of Coal is not good. If President Trump wants to really help hard working Americans who have and will continue to lose their jobs in the infamous rust belt of America, he needs to be doing all he can to provide incentives to “Green Companies” to set up their factories in the rust belt areas. Moreover, President Trump needs to create government funded Green Energy Universities in these rust belt areas to help Americans make the transition to learn new skills in STEM.

Absolutely nothing is impossible for Americans given the chance. If many foreign students can get their degrees for free or at a highly affordable rate in their country then they have the advantage over American kids. Many American kids simply cannot afford a STEM education without going into hundreds of thousands of dollars in student debt. Again, maybe if President Trump can see his way to champion debt free higher education for all Americans, Americans could once again get on a level playing field with the rest of the world.

Making America Great Again will depend on President Trump's Ability to Make America the Smartest Again.

STEM needs to be the new basic literacy of every American. There is zero unemployment in the US for STEM graduates, as outlined before, STEM companies are beside themselves scratching their heads trying to figure out how to fill all the vacancies they have, but they need STEM educated graduates.

Every business in America needs to modernize through STEM from developing their manufacturing processes so they can create more manual jobs, to helping them market their products globally and competitively, which in turn will create more American jobs.

Whilst, many might not have wanted President Trump to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, my view is that he may have done a great thing inadvertently. In playing the role of the antagonist President Trump has really lit or poured gasoline on fire of the Green Revolution.  The mass migration from fossil fuels to green energy will save the planet and this migration is not only unstoppable but it’s happening at a rate few really appreciate.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article. Take a moment to think about how you can help us Make America Great Again, if you have talent in STEM America needs you. Will you answer the call?
