    In the words of President Barack Obama “…Science, accumulated and reviewed over decades, tells us that our planet is changing in ways that will have profound impacts on all of humankind…those who are already feeling the effects of climate change don’t have time to deny it—they’re busy dealing with it.” Global warming is already beginning to alter life on Earth with rising sea levels, poor air quality and increasingly severe climate changes. To help slow global warming, the government should set standards such as the Clean Power Plan to help limit the amount of carbon dioxide pollution that power plants release into the air. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, carbon dioxide pollution is the leading factor in global warming.…

Financially, it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars a year. This is because of the funding of things like asset destruction, forced relocations, droughts, and extinctions. “Already the Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that the US Climate Disruption Budget — i.e., stuff related to drought, storms, and growing climate disruptions — was nearly $100 billion.…
