Working with other countries to take care of our planet makes no sense?
Reversing the effects of man made climate even by a half a degree. Means that we stopped it from rising further and are stabilising the temperature.
To put this into perspective as some people (maybe not you necessarily) don't seem to understand how the global temperature works. Its an average of
every countries average temperature. So a small change of the global temp. Equates to large changes around the world.
In fact during the last ice age the global temp. was only 4-7 degrees colder than it is now. A few degrees warmer and there will be large scale
droughts spreading across the planet. Causing even more war and famine.
Reversing the projected 2° increase by 2030 and dropping the current global temp. by 1/2 a degree could end the drought in Syria and could help
ensure that California or the rest of the U.S. doesn't have another massive draught.
Not to mention the Paris agreement was also meant to bring lesser developed countries up to code. So basically preventing another China from
happening as far as pollution goes.
I would say that is a rather large impact, wouldn't you?
