    There will still be too much money if delaying and denial, though the next president has ever increasing chances of undeniably terrible destruction from decades of inaction.

    Hillary does not have the benefit of a glib tongue.

      The US has decreased aggregate CO2 emissions since 2007, the only major country to have done so.

        avg. US CO2 emissions 04-08 - 17.3 tons/capita
        avg. US CO2 emissions 09-13 - 17.6 tons/capita

        So unless your position is that the US population has decreased since 2007, I can't see how your comment is anything other than denialist nonsense.

        I might add that that's 193% the emissions of a German,  283% those of a Chinese, 352% of those of a Swiss, and 20 or 30 times that of a Pakistani, African or inhabitants of other developing nations.

        So yes, the US is a problem.
