Now, it is getting personal: Someone is enabling circumstances that might result in my death, your death and the death of countless people around the world.
I am referring to an infamous statement Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) statement made in a May 11 interview with This Week:

Rubio - who expressed deep skepticism about whether man-made activity has played a role in the Earth's changing climate - told [ABC news reporter Jonathan] Karl he doesn't believe there is action that could be taken right now that would have an impact on what's occurring with our climate.

"I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it … and I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it, except it will destroy our economy," he said.

Given ongoing major reports, including last week, that we may have crossed the threshold into a catastrophic cauldron of brewing and already-present climate change, Rubio is condemning much of the earth to catastrophe and death.

That is because most scenarios that scientists have outlined will create a new atmospheric reality on earth, one that will unleash disastrous forces. It is unlikely that large-scale death will be avoidable under any of the current predictions.
