Warming

CNN reported recently that the temperature reached 48 degrees in Spain and Portugal, into the 40’s in Europe. In my time it almost never reached 30 in London. They say it will soon regularly make it into the 50’s in the most populated country in the world, China. Not to mention weather reports for 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. Today we should use our democratic vote to act against climate change. Like all life on Earth we face extinction. We have a voice if we use it.

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!”

I felt I also needed to include the link below in this post. They have discovered that the air pollution that causes global warming, CO2 emissions etc, has another effect. It reduces our intelligence. Maybe soon enough we won’t perceive that there is a problem.
