To the Editor:
Trump backs out of the Paris Climate Accord, helps warm Russia, Siberia, the great white north and rewards Russia for helping in the U.S. election.
The upside for Russia is great, major warming in Siberia, more arable land, boost in oil prices, few coastal cities to flood from sea level rising as opposed to more troubles for China with Hong Kong, Shanghai and many other coastal cities, Gobi desert expansion and dust storms.
The pivot to China and the Pacific is looking more like a pivot to Russia.
Liberal California will also suffer more from global warming, drought, forest die-offs, Colorado River watershed problems.
Look at the past Republican neglect of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina flooding. Florida will be in the crosshairs.
