Facing two degrees of global warming (mind you, the last ice age was just two degrees colder than the pre-industrial average), and a world power which is utterly unwilling to curb it, Rome is burning, and Trump is fiddling away.

But, we’re NOT facing 2 degrees of global warming. IPCC projections are .2 per DECADE. So, your “2 degrees” will take 100 years to attain….and if by then, we haven’t got carbon emissions down to zero, well, then maybe we deserve to tread water.

Ergo, you’re being a bit hyperbolic, in my view. Let’s deal in realism. Exaggeration that is easily refuted decreases, not increases, your credibility.
