It is comparable to Australia. They 'gave up the fight' yet have to endure an extreme heat alert and drought because it is SUMMER there and the inaction is no better than action when it is LOCAL and LIMITED.

All this means is that we need a GLOBAL strategy to put a price on GHG emissions, as well as an education program to inform the clueless that it will take DECADES to have a significant impact, just as we have taken nearly a CENTURY to create the problem.
