Lucky news: China and India’s speedy pullback on coal effectively covers for emerging Trump-era US shortfalls in fighting climate pollution

Sometimes we get lucky, in this case where China and India are ahead of schedule curtailing the use of filthy coal – effectively, picking up the slack created by Trump squashing America’s Clean Power Plan.

Good backgrounder by Andrew Freedman of Mashable, “The surprising link between Donald Trump and the coal slowdown in China, India.”

Looks like Trump’s “America First” approach simply forfeits worldwide leadership, away from the US and toward a “multi-lateral world.”

If you live in America and want to use your Third Superpower:  To Save the Planet, Use Your Voice, please advocate forcefully against Trump’s poorly-informed and ill-advised repeal of the Clean Power Plan!

Not sure where to start saving the planet (civilization, really)?  Our Thesis is: “Start by deeply knowing your personal Superpowers: ” 

1) To save the planet, CHANGE YOURSELF FIRST;

2) INVEST YOUR WORKING LIFE;

3) USE YOUR VOICE and take advocacy seriously!  Never miss a vote and never, ever stop influencing your government and all businesses locally, at the state level, and at the national level.  

It falls upon you to lead the way with substantive global warming solutions.  

And in all cases and at all times, cast aside the learned-helplessness that infects so much of modern life… the time is now for climate change solutions.  No one else is going to do your part for you…
