Also, does solar energy rely on highly skilled workers, which Trump enablers are probably too inferior (?) to become?

When you have an argument about global warming, please post it.

Recently the Pinkerton Detective Agency has been gearing up to cash in on the chaos that is sure to follow global warming. These guys are not politicians like Trump who are in the pocket of, among other pockets, the fossil fuel industry. These are capitalists looking for money making opportunities. They respond to facts, not political talk shows on Fox Fake News. This is the free enterprise system at work.

Up to 1m species are at risk of annihilation, many within decades, according to a leaked draft of the global assessment report, which has been compiled over three years by the UN’s leading research body on nature.

The US has no jurisdiction in Mumbai, India. However, we could impose tariffs on trade with India, providing relief when they demonstrate effective policies. What do you think of that?
