Clinton’s careful acknowledgement of the scale of the problem compared to Trump’s scientific illiteracy is a truly preposterous juxtaposition.

Trump pretends that climate change is a hoax, but it’s demonstrably clear that he is only denying or ignoring the threat of climate change because it suits the business interests of many who support him. He ignores compelling scientific evidence that climate change brings with it more powerful natural disasters, sinking cities, famine, war, and agricultural and economic collapse.

It is a threat to the US national security. It will disproportionately affect the poor, and bring about a refugee crisis the likes of which the world has never seen.

In many ways, the election of Trump would be a disaster. He is an existential threat to the Republic, a menace to minorities and women, and a danger to the democratic process, to say the least.


As his policies on energy also show, he will guarantee that we will live in a world full of climate change nightmares. The best way to fight against this is to vote for a candidate that takes this seriously, who acts like an empathetic adult, and the choice in this election could not be clearer.

In this sense, making sure Trump isn’t elected is potentially the least selfish thing you can do in your lifetime – not just for America, but for the planet.
