Posts Tagged ‘Paris Treaty’

I kinda grew up with Ron Insana, back when he was a news anchor with FNN (Financial News Network)… that eventually become CNBC.  My wife (girlfriend at the time) often remarked that he was our morning alarm clock.

He wrote an editorial today about Trump and pollution and the Paris Treaty that I think is spot on.

It’s short and worth reading, but there’s one point he makes that I often use myself:

Ron said it like this:

I am not a “tree hugger.” I don’t have the necessary scientific background to claim expertise in this area. I don’t know if the changes we are seeing are the result of natural cycles that occur in geologic time, or if they are governed by solar cycles, or are, as many worry, anthropogenic (caused by humans).

To me, it doesn’t really matter. It seems obvious that whatever the reason, we, as humans, should act responsibly when it comes to the care and cleaning of our habitat.

Bravo, Ron.

I like to say it like this:  I don’t care if global warming is real or not… who the hell wants to live in smog-infested cities like LA and Beijing?
