It's possible for some trend to to manifest itself regardless of some other force acting against it. What I'm saying is that it may be that the rate of CO2 emissions is declining despite Trump, not because of him. I'm slow to attribute circumstances, good or bad, to any particular presidency, including Trump.

I'm all for keeping the existing nuke reactors so long as they are in sufficient working order and safe enough. I'd probably be for new reactors if it could be shown that it can deliver power at competitive prices over the service lifetime, and that there is a plan for managing the waste.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
