Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Trump doesn't have to be the stooge of international conspirators to be pro-oil. The US has been the biggest oil producer in the world since oil production became a thing, it is the home of the biggest multinational oil conglomerates, and whole areas of the country are devoted to oil and oil infrastructure support. Add the coal legacy to that, and tribal conservatives who will oppose anything the "libs" suggest on principle, and there is a large and important home-grown fossil fuel lobby just itching to shut down climate science. Climate denialism was born in the US, after all.
