We’re cooking the planet (part 13)

We’ve already inflicted long-term damage to the atmosphere of our planet, and we piled it on last year:

Scientists have confirmed that 2015 was the hottest year on record in the 136 years that useful records have been kept.

We have to take immediate steps to shut down coal mines and phase out the use of dirty, dangerous coal. We need to make gasoline-powered vehicles much more efficient. We need to require that users pay the true economic cost of creating pollution. We need to continue expanding our use of renewable energy.

This is the only planet our grandchildren will have to live on.

Let’s do everything we can do to clean it up.
