“Paris Was Always Just the Beginning — Here’s How Everyday People Can Help On Climate.”

Yes, Trump has made a good start by exiting from the Paris Accord, but there’s still a lot to do, starting with legislating that CO2 is NOT a pollutant, it is plant food. The EPA should be banned from treating CO2 as a pollutant, and directed to divert its budget to fighting real pollutants such as the mercury in long-life fluorescent bulbs, Nitrogen Dioxide and Sulphur dioxide in smokestacks, lead in paint and petrol, packaging discarded to fill landfills, etc.

We could stop talking about Climate Change, too: it only exists in our minds as a problem because of constant propaganda saying the climate is getting worse. If anything, it is getting better. The Sea Level has been rising for the last 20,000 years since the end of the last ice age and will continue to do so at about 1 metre per century: there isn’t anything we can do to stop that, but the process is so slow, we will deal with it.

Let’s agree to stop terrifying each other with fake news about the Climate Apocalypse: it isn’t happening.
