Ironic that PANTONE’S Colour of Year 2016 is Serenity (and Rose Quartz)… many of us will all be seeking mindfulness and an antidote to modern stress as we wake this morning. PANTONE’S Executive Director suggests that the 2016 colour generates ‘…a soothing sense of order and peace.’ As the American election result sinks in, our fears around order and peace mount. Trump’s election could mean ‘planetary disaster’ and here’s why…
On climate change: Trump believes climate change is a ‘hoax’ and promises to remove the US from its signatories.
On drilling for oil and gas: Trump supports more drilling in the Arctic and also on public land and off the US coast.
On coal: Trump supports proposes expanding the use of coal as an energy source.
On the carbon tax: Trump refers to the policies on the carbon tax as ‘job killing’ policies
Clean power: Trump has promised to ‘roll back most of Obama’s environmental policies’
