  1. The throne is empty?...

    'Maybe someday Trump will realize that he actually could be the savior of the Earth. Could you imagine the transformative power of a Republican president getting the Republican party to find solutions to climate change? It would fit a megalomania frame. It would be powerful and inspiring. However, the chances it will happen are about as good as the chance we can avoid our targeted 2C temperature rise (almost zero). Not if you surround yourselves with foxes as you go in to raid the hen house.

    At the risk of losing objectiveness but keeping candor, we are fucked.'
