All gas, no brakes...

We just broke the record for fossil fuel production back in October, and we've doubled production since 2012

We can't afford to wait four more years and hope we have a pro environment candidate. At this rate it'll take decades to correct another four years of stalling.

This is the best summary I could come up with:


For the first time on record, global warming has exceeded temperatures of 1.5 C over a 12-month period, European Union climate scientists reported this week.

The EU agency blamed human-caused climate change and the El Niño weather phenomenon that warms the Pacific Ocean for driving the record heat over the past year.

This week, officials with B.C.’s River Forecast Centre said the province’s snowpack is almost 40 per cent lower than normal for this time of year.

Although El Niño has began to weaken in the equatorial Pacific, marine air temperatures in general remained “at an unusually high level” in January, the EU agency added.

As part of the 2015 Paris Agreement, world leaders pledged to limit temperature rise to 1.5 C, which climate scientists argue to critical to limit disasters like heat waves, floods drought and wildfire.

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned the world is not on track to meet those targets.

side question is this website legit and factual when it says

“We already have all of the necessary solutions to decarbonize”

https://drawdown.org/solutions

if someone can verify please tell me

No, it is not factual. Sure there are methods to reduce carbon, but it’s like putting a Q-tip in a bucket of oil.
