AN OPEN LETTER TO DONALD TRUMP
from John Wawrzonek and everyone else on this planet.
How would you feel if you were the last man who could save this planet from a horrible fate.
How would you feel if you didn't do it?
How would you feel if you did do it.?
What do you think the history books will say about you if you don't do it?
What do you think the history books will say is you do?
You have almost no time left to think?
(actually no time at all; it probably can't be done, but if it can be every second counts)
You are right.
The Paris Accords are like peeing in the Pacific.
They cannot do the job even if everyone does their part. The situation is much too serious for that and you, and almost everyone else is chicken to face the truth.
Stopping all emissions will only slow things down.
We have to do much more than that. We have to take the carbon out of the air------
AND PUT IT BACK IN THE GROUND.
ARE YOU LISTENING?
WE HAVE TO PUT IT BACK.
AND TO DO IT, SOMEONE HAS TO HAVE THE BALLS TO COMMIT ONE TRILLION dollars NOW to find the best way to do it.
And put millions of people to work. And be the leader of the world again.
Who do we need? The greatest hero the planet has ever known.
The ball is in your court.
Do I think you will do it? No.
Do I think you can do it? Yes.
If ever the ball was in someone's court it is in yours and it is now.
(more to come)
