Limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees versus 2 has big benefits, the IPCC says


Yes, because we did everything the "experts" said to do - replaced bad freon with good, replaced all of our toilets to use less water, eliminated many chemicals from industry, cut auto emissions far beyond what we ever thought possible, the # of head of cattle has been dropping steadily, agriculture practices have improved greatly, appliances have been developed that use far less energy, etc. So still the earth will end in 10-20 years. These same dire predictions are made year after year, and the result is nothing. So yes, I'm good with the past if you think that was the easy way out.
