Andrew Yang essentially says we're all screwed on climate change, so therefore we all need more money in our pocket so we can move to "higher ground" pic.twitter.com/78Ge1B2zLp— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) August 1, 2019
In July 2019, a major melting event spread across the Greenland Ice Sheet. Billions of tons of meltwater streamed into the Atlantic Ocean throughout the month, making a direct and immediate contribution to sea level rise. https://t.co/s5qQn1u01N #Greenland #NASA #Landsat pic.twitter.com/KGhUlHm0YC— NASA Earth (@NASAEarth) August 4, 2019
Scientists at NASA have just backed Andrew Yang on his dark but realistic climate change response from the second Democratic debate weeks ago.
Immediately after the debate political pundits criticized the presidential candidate for saying that people should start moving away from the coast since it will only get warmer in a few years no matter how well we do on curbing emissions.
“The important number in this is 15 percent of global emissions,” said Yang. “We like to act as if we’re 100 percent. Even if we were to curb our emissions dramatically, the Earth is going to get warmer. The last four years have been the four warmest years in history. We are too late. We are 10 years too late.”
