I once remember a high school history teacher of mine telling me how he did not know much about the environment. Still, he thought it was becoming increasingly worse. I then remember my AP Chem teacher, during my sophomore year of high school, confirming the fact that the environment is degrading, and that one did not need to be in an AP science class to recognize this. When I first heard about this issue, I did not know what to think, as I had grown accustomed to weather disasters such as Hurricane Sandy affecting my own area of New Jersey. I had wrongly assumed for some reason that this was natural and that these hurricanes and pollutants in the air were just some kind of byproduct of human existence. It did not take me long, however, to realize that this is not the way the environment should be and that global temperatures rising is negatively impacting the world.
This past February I had the amazing opportunity to lay out of my morning class and the even more amazing opportunity to see the Secretary-General of the U.N. speak in person.
President Trump became a laughingstock on the world stage
On 26th September 2018 President Donald Trump held the fourth solo press conference of his presidency. President Trump most likely held this conference in order to fight back against his administration’s numerous scandals, as well as the incredibly controversial nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The presser also took place only one day after Trump was laughed at while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly. This should have been a fairly straightforward speech by Trump. However, as with all things the President seems to be involved in, the conference quickly derailed and devolved into utter absurdity.
