Trump’s election marks the end of any serious hope of limiting climate change to 2 degrees

The nations of the world have agreed that allowing global average temperature to rise more than 2 degrees from preindustrial levels would be a disaster — that 2 degrees should be avoided at all costs, and that prudence suggests aiming for closer to 1.5 degrees.

Those targets, agreed upon in December in Paris, are now almost certainly out of reach. The fight to prevent dangerous climate change was lost last night with the election of Donald Trump.

Sorry, but I don’t think so.

And there you have it.

Dean will like many of us die in numerous decades, so who cares about the future for those we leave behind, when we can do something about the climate change
Luckily we do not have people like you advising.
Another fine example of your selfishness
