Global Warming & Nor'easter Numero 4 (In 3 Weeks)


Clearly, our weather is meshugganah. It's snowing. Again. 
The fourth nor'easter in three weeks ... and it's the first day of spring. 
(Happy Spring!)  


The trend for global warming is accelerating. If we don't curb emissions, average temperatures in the U.S. could increase by up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century. Internationally, Alliance for Climate Protection advocates laws to reduce CO2 emissions, working to persuade everyone -- from individuals to corporations -- to become "carbon neutral."
What does Trump think? 
"Well, I think the climate change is just a very, very expensive form of tax. 
A lot of people are making a lot of money. I know much about climate change. I'd be—received environmental awards. And I often joke that this is done for the benefit of China. Obviously, I joke. But this is done for the benefit of China, because China does not do anything to help climate change. They burn everything you could burn; they couldn't care less. They have very—you know, their standards are nothing. But they—in the meantime, they can undercut us on price. So it's very hard on our business."

Thank you, Mr. Trump.
