I was thinking about writing a post containing the list of CEOs of major US corporations who have come out against Trump’s decision regarding the Paris Climate Accord. I am overwhelmed. I would make my life easier by writing a list of those who haven’t.
I cannot let it go unsaid regarding one of these: Elon Musk. It is really hilarious to consider that he has no company without the government’s involvement in the climate.
None of these CEOs is a climate expert; all of them publicly complain about regulation. You would think that this combination of characteristics would lead to either at best cheering the elimination of the horrendous regulatory burdens imposed by yet another international scheme or at worst shutting up on a topic that they really don’t know much about.
But, of course, we know better.
