‘According to several international studies in recent months, China’s emissions have not only surged past the U.S. level, but also are growing at a rate that far outstrips wealthy nations’ capacity to decrease theirs.’
Where my mind went at first:
We are doomed. Why even bother? This is depressing. We have no control. This is pissing me off. I don’t want to die from the Chinese mess up. This is terrifying. No matter what we do, we are not going to make it. Why? Why? I am tempted to just give up.
How I retrained my thoughts:
It has not happened yet. There are people working on this. Actually, the article says the Chinese leaders are open to some help. If we elect the right leader, and we commit more resources to helping China the right way, there is hope. Not all is lost. It still makes sense to do my share.
All it took was just one sentence to nearly throw me off the green bandwagon. It is of utmost importance to give people reasons to hope.
