Republican platform extreme denial

Republican platform is unbelievable and PM May just closed the climate change office in the UK.
“Unsurprisingly, given Trump’s stance on environmental issues, the committee unanimously voted to include language that declares coal “an abundant, clean, affordable, reliable domestic energy resource”—which, as Grist points out, “just happens to reflect the same talking points favored by the lobby group, American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE).”
The platform also moves the party further right in regards to its stance on Israel, removing language that called for a two-state solution and changing the draft to now read: “We reject the false notion that Israel is an occupier, and specifically recognize that the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (‘BDS’) is anti-Semitic in nature and seeks to destroy Israel.”
The draft also encourages “state legislators to offer The Bible as a literature curriculum and elective” in high schools at the same time that the committee widely backed a new provision that declares Internet pornography a “public health crisis.””
