Applauding the UK for standing up to Trump

I believe the people of the UK deserve an apology for the actions of President Trump. The protests have spread to your shores and I fully understand why 1.5 million UK citizens petitioned your government to cancel his state visit.

I am deeply embarrassed by Trump warning that he will likely "erupt" if Prince Charles pushes him on green issues or lectures him on climate change.

Trump has wrapped himself in an impenetrable cocoon, wherein facts and the laws of nature are irrelevant and subject to elimination by executive order.

I have long admired Prince Charles for his crusade to protect the environment and address the causes of climate change. In stark contrast, the US President is embarking on an agenda that includes threats to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

Please stand with the many millions in the US, who are protesting and will continue to protest the assaults of our government on science, scientists, the environment, the climate and the future of all of us.
