Fossil fuel burning set to hit record high in 2017, scientists warn – Guardian UK


Very bad news. We need strong answers now. Our political leaders need to educate the public that is not on board with changes that if we don’t take leadership in this, our children and grand children may find a world unrecognizable, if even habitable. Locally, we need our leaders to help promote less use of fossil fuel cars, more use of transit, especially between north Peninsula towns like PT, Sequim and PA, and also to work on identifying urban areas that are going to be flooded in and start planning for the future moves. For example, Point Hudson is not sustainable, probably after 2050, what plans could we start now to hold off the rising sea as long as possible?

The burning of fossil fuels around the world is set to hit a record high in 2017, climate scientists have warned, following three years of flat growth that raised hopes that a peak in global emissions had been reached.
