"Unprecedented droughts, fires and floods are not the “new normal”: Climate change gets nonlinearly worse from here on out. Like an avalanche, the physics of warming determines that a little more warming doesn’t create a little more extremeness, but a lot more. Until we reduce greenhouse gas warming, it gets a lot worse every year. Reducing emissions alone does not reverse warming until after 2300. To reduce warming, we must eliminate all greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, plus remove near 1,000 gigatons of already emitted greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, according to the new 1.5°C report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change.

Its amusing watching Trump edge up to line of admitting climate change is causing the huge wildfires in Calfornia and other places in the west, without actually saying he believes in global warming

Trump actually said "I want a great climate."

He didn't come out and say the climate has changed and he wants to make the climate great again---but he came real close.

Cheers!
