Paris Climate Deal ==> We're All Gonna Die

While no one thinks the Paris Goals will be met (by a LONG shot), its even worse than I knew. I thought the accords of limiting the temp change to 2 Degrees was based on reducing our dependence on Fossil Fuels and switching to Green and Nukes. Trying to get to zero additional co2 input and letting the Climate System reach a new equilibrium.

I was Wrong.

The Accord is BASED ON actually REMOVING CARBON FROM THE ATMOSPHERE....... and we are no where near doing that, although I did see just yesterday an advert about converting co2 into sneakers..... the hint of a first start?

A current on point article in the Economist lays it out more directly, but it is behind a paywall. I've reached my free access limit. You might read it at: https://www.economist.com/news/leaders/ ... sucked-out

.....................and some call me cynical.

I seem to recall a few years ago, USA environmentalists criticizing the Paris agreement as ineffective and Obama defending it as a first step.

Trump rejected the treaty, therefore the environmental apocalypse is all his fault. :mrgreen:

Not all...... but he takes his share. Still an open question whether or not USA defaulting as "World Leader" will help or hurt the cause....................

"World Leader" has always been a horseshit concept, no matter who claims it.

World Leader: purely definitional.

With knowledge, imagination, and a will to do so............it can be useful. Not Leading as "in command" but by example?
