    Several states and many big corporations including Walmart, McDonald's and Citigroup are determined to meet the goals of the Paris climate change accord despite Trump pulling the US out of the agreement. California Governor Jerry Brown, who will host a global climate summit in September, laments that we are just beginning to see the environmental damage caused by Trump's action:

    Governor Brown says fallout from Trump quitting Paris accord is 'far more serious than anyone is saying

    Global temperatures are getting warmer. Facts and figures do not lie. Unfortunately there are still a few people who don't believe the facts and figures. We all know who they are.

    May heat smashes US temperature records
    CBS News, Jun 6 2018 1:10 PM

    Record heat returned to the United States with a vengeance last month. May warmed to a record average 65.4° in the contiguous 48 states, breaking the high of 64.7° set in 1934, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. May was 5.2° above the 20th century’s average for the month. Weather stations in the nation broke or tied nearly 8,600 daily heat records in May. Minneapolis reached a high of 100° on May 28, the earliest the city has seen triple digits. The United Kingdom, Germany and other places also set May heat records.

    World leaders, with one exception, want clean air, clean water and clean energy. One leader wants dirty air, dirty water and dirty coal. I'll give you one guess who he is.

    Six of the G7 commit to climate action. Trump wouldn’t even join the conversation.
    Trump skipped the formal climate discussions, had the US negotiators promote fossil fuels instead and then renounced the group's official communiqué in a Twitter tirade.

    Pretty soon, the penguins will have to start building rafts.

    Antarctica's ice sheet lost 3 trillion tons of ice between 1992 and 2017. The rate of melting has tripled since 2012, a new study finds.
