Trump team admits climate change will sink Miami, but doesn't care

By Oliver Willis - October 1, 2018

he Trump administration admits that temperatures are rising to a catastrophic level thanks to climate change — but refuses to do anything to help stop it.

The Trump administration is admitting that a catastrophic rise in planetary temperatures will endanger millions of lives around the world — but is still refusing to do anything to prevent it.

In an environmental impact statement released by the administration, the Trump team acknowledged that by the end of the century the planet will warm by seven degrees Fahrenheit, or about 3.5 degrees Celsius.

Such an increase in temperature would be nothing short of a worldwide disaster.

“Extreme heat waves would routinely smother large parts of the globe,” The Washington Post reports. Major American cities like Manhattan and Miami would be underwater. Coral reefs would simply dissolve as the ocean becomes more acidic.

The Trump administration knows that all of this will happen — and yet it is choosing to make the problem even worse.

The impact statement notes that to fight the problem, cuts have to be made in carbon emissions. But it makes the absurd claim that moving away from the use of carbon emitting fossil fuels “is not currently technologically feasible or economically feasible.”

1. "not ... economically feasible"

such is the price for the continued existence of the biosphere as we have come to know it. eventually a generation will arise whose members are willing to pay the price. or not.
