here comes the sun

WASHINGTON (AP) — Preventing an extra single degree of heat could make a life-or-death difference in the next few decades for multitudes of people and ecosystems on this fast-warming planet, an international panel of scientists reported Sunday. But they provide little hope the world will rise to the challenge.
The Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued its gloomy report at a meeting in Incheon, South Korea....
More than 90 scientists wrote the report, which is based on more than 6,000 peer reviews.
It is quivering to think that a man of U.S. President Donald Trump's stripe will or can seriously address such problems.


  1. In the story they seem to equate 1 Celsius with 1.8 Fahrenheit. But if you pull up a converter, such as google's, you see 1 Celsius converts to 33.8 Fahrenheit. So which is it?


    1. I assumed the reference was delta 1 degree celsius is equivalent to delta 1.8 degree Fahrenheit.

      Example to go from 0 C to 1 C is equivalent to going from 32 F to 33.8 F,

      Test & Check 100 C to 101 C is equivalent to going from 212 F to 213.8 F.
      Delta C is 1 Delta F is 1.8

      However, the actual conversion formula
      Degrees Fahrenheit = (Degree Centigrade * 9/5) + 32 F is probably outside many journalists’ capability even though this supposed to have been learned in Junior High School.

    2. When will someone connect the dots?

      A Few of the Dots:

      Trump is Anti Climate Change
      Trump’s fortune is chump change
      Trump’s Greed is Great
      Trump’s ethics and Social Responsiblity are small change

      Major Petroleum Companies are Anti Climate Change
      Major Petroleum Companies Fortunes are major chunks of change.
      Major Petroleum Companies’ Greed is Great
      Major Petroleum Companies’ Ethics and Social Responsibility are Small Change
