    Lessons emerging in the 21st century include that people willing to elect the likes of Putin, Duterte, Erdogan and Trump, and those willing to squabble on lesser-quality political rhetoric as recently seen in Britain, France and Germany,—— are not going to adequately address man-made climate change. We had, circa 1990’s, our window of time for becoming a more sensible world. The window closed.
