    The head of the United Nations: "The world is facing a grave climate emergency. Every nation must stop building new coal plants, cut greenhouse gas emissions by 45% and switch from fossil fuels to solar power." The President of the United States: "Climate change is a hoax. We don't need to worry about greenhouse gas emissions. Now let's get our coal miners back to work!" In Trumpworld, the former reality television star denies reality.

    I just want to clear the air: The fight against climate change is taking some strange twists and turns.

    Cows genetically modified to burp and fart less could cut methane emissions by half

    This idea makes sense. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere contributes to global warming. Trees absorb carbon dioxide. All we need to do now is find one trillion unplanted trees and plant them. How difficult could that be?

    Planting a trillion trees could be the 'most effective solution' to climate change, study says

    In 2018, California experienced record-breaking heat waves and several huge wildfires. In 2019, record-breaking heat waves and huge wildfires are reoccurring – but in Alaska. Alaska!

    On 20 days in June, the temperature in Bahrain was 104° or higher and on one of those days it reached 113°. Sounds like California.

    Bahrain records hottest June since 1902

    Representatives of more than 7,000 schools, colleges and universities worldwide have signed a letter declaring a "climate emergency." Each institution has pledged to combat climate change via research, education and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, Trump continues to insist climate change is a "hoax" and continues to roll back standards for clean air, clean water and fuel efficiency. And let's hurry up and get those coal miners back to work!

    Fourteen of the 15 hottest years ever recorded have occurred this century. This year will likely make it 15 of 16.

    Last month was the hottest June ever recorded in earth's history, with temperatures in Europe 18° Fahrenheit above average

    "I don't believe this story. There is no such thing as global warming, okay? It's a hoax, okay? And where is Mick Mulvaney? I need him to tell me why the monthly expenditures for air conditioning at the White House are so outrageously high."

    'Breaking' the heat index: US heat waves to skyrocket as globe warms, study suggests.
    If you think it's hot now, just wait a while.

    Excessive heat warnings and heat advisories have been issued for 34 states. Around 155,000,000 people are affected. School classes have been canceled. Sunday's New York City Triathlon has been canceled. Worldwide, last month was was the hottest June on record. This month could be the hottest July on record. Yikes!
