Mick Jagger said America should be setting the environmental standard for the world to follow, but, under the leadership of Trump, Jagger believes environment controls are being decimated.
‘But when you see it now… in so many countries, including my own this last week, but particularly the US, it’s a sea change.
‘It is not about manners,’ Jagger insisted, saying he was fearful about ‘where all this polarization and rudeness and lying is going to lead us.’
More worrying still, said the singer, was that what little environmental safeguards there were were being swept away across the globe.
Jagger blasted Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement.
‘We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the US, where all the environmental controls that were put in place – that were just about adequate – have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,’ he added.
