👓 Small Businesses Cheer ‘New Sheriff in Town’ After Climate Pact Exit | New York Times

Read Small Businesses Cheer ‘New Sheriff in Town’ After Climate Pact Exit by Landon Thomas, Jr. (New York Times)
Local firms’ leaders around the country remain widely supportive of President Trump, even as some chief executives of big corporations pull away.
This may be the definition of mediocre reporting, and possibly worse because it was one of the biggest stories of the week. It’s nice to have a story telling us what the other parts of the country are feeling. What they’re completely missing here is “WHY do these people who really have no experience with the science think this is the correct direction?” Other than repeating sound bites they’ve heard (most likely politicians say) on television, what are their reasons for cheering? They need to be prodded several questions deep to find the real underlying reasons.

I suspect that most small businesses don’t have very solid reasons, if any at all, for their cheering.

Addendum: Even worse, I heard the head of the EPA reference this particular article to support his own arguments on Meet the Press this morning. Because of this it would have been even better if the underlying reason for their joy was covered.
