“Holy crap it’s hot. People, animals, and crops are dying.
But not only is it hot, it’s hotter than it used to be. And it’s our fault. Welcome to the future of climate change.
Let’s keep this simple: we know the Earth is warming up — the data are unambiguous.* We know that humans are largely responsible — the scientific community has been clear. And we know that the massive efforts to deny these two facts have confused policy makers, the public, and the media and have seriously delayed taking any sort of effective policy action to slow climate changes.
What this delay means, however, is rarely discussed, but in the most straightforward terms:
It’s going to get even hotter. A lot hotter.”
