“The scientific community is telling us if we do not address the global crisis of climate change, transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to sustainable energy, the planet that we’re going to be leaving our kids and our grandchildren may well not be habitable. That is a major crisis.”

As carbon pollution hits record level, Senator James Inhofe says Climate Change is greening the planet, according to VICE News.
“‘People don’t realize you can’t grow things without CO2,” Inhofe, the Republican chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said on the chamber’s floor Wednesday. “CO2 is a fertilizer. It’s something you can’t do without. No one ever talks about the benefits that people are inducing from that as a fertilizer.” That buildup has led “to a greening of the planet and contributed to increasing agricultural productivity,’ he said.
The overwhelming majority of climate scientists, however, warn that the increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases — a byproduct of burning coal, oil, and natural gas — are changing the Earth’s climate at an unnaturally rapid rate. The warming that results is likely to bring a future of rising seas and more intense storms and droughts, with the world’s poor bearing the brunt of the effects.”
As people in power constantly dispute scientific findings and allow big corporations to contribute to global warming, our planet—and its inhabitants—finds itself in a dire predicament.
