We’ve been fretting about the future of our planet for years now, often in this space. While we are seeing the impact of climate change even now, the immediate future is calamitous, according to a report issued by the United Nation’s scientific panel on climate change.
Can anything be done? More to the point, can anyone convince President Trump and the deniers in Congress that climate change is not a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese, as Trump has infamously declared? If the UN report, which describes “…a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040” doesn’t move them, what will it take? Will their children and grandchildren be grateful that they stood by the “Chinese hoax” theory?
