CNN reports that it reached 48 degrees in Spain and Portugal, has been in the 40s in London and Europe. It used to be unusual for London to reach 30 degrees. They say it will soon regularly reach into the 50s in the most populated country in the world, China. Not to mention reports on Japan and Korea. Soon all places will be too hot for human beings. The US has removed itself from the Paris accord on Climate Change and started burning coal again. According to the president there, global warming is a hoax by China. The effects of global warming won’t peak for about 100 years after we stop emitting the gases. We really should act now! If we use social media for anything perhaps we should collectively express the desire to save the planet and avoid extinction. Apparently social media can have an impact. Facebook may have recently influenced the US election they say.

Quotes from the internet:

On November 6, 2012, Donald Trump tweeted: “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

On October 19, 2015, he then tweeted: “It’s really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!”
