    Imagine a deathly hot, dry world with no water or life. This is the eventual fate of our Earth if we don't do something about climate change. If there is even an 18/5 degree increase in temperature, climate change would become runaway, making Earth look like Venus. This is not just China exploiting us for money, this is real. Look at all of the numerous studies showing that the Earth is warming, and it is being caused by humans. Just take a look at the infamous "hockey stick" graph of global temperatures, and say that the temperature didn't start to rise in the 1800s at the same time that we began burning fossil fuels. It isn't China's fault. The blame is likely to be pinned on America if something doesn't change soon. China is trying to get ahead in the game, and if the Trump Administration doesn't take advantage, our economy could be destroyed when no one wants to buy our "primitive" fossil fuel burning technology. Hence, it could help our economy if we start now. Also, think of the habitat and animal losses. A prime example of this is the Tasmanian Tiger. It was an animal that lived in Australia until the early 1900s. It looked almost like a dog, and was the worlds largest carnivorous marsupial. However, when Europeans arrived, the tiger was extinct within 500 years. It was because of changing habitat and habitat loss. This could still happen to many animals today, like elephants and lions. How would you feel if most of the animals and plants alive today became extinct because of your actions? This is the question that many people need to consider. Therefore, the Trump administration should pay more attention to reports of warming temperatures, for the sake of our environment as well as our economy.
