Count me among the pessimists. With an entire political party in the U.S. dedicated to the proposition that global warming and its associated science is bunkum, there is little likelihood that America will come close to meeting its target pledge. Yet, as the above chart indicates, even if all the nations convening in Paris meet their targets, the planet still warms by over six degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century.

What a legacy for my grandkids. And RepublicansĀ dare talk about family.
