"The time to heed the critics and the cynics and the deniers is past," the president said.
Unless the world acts more aggressively and more quickly, he said, "entire nations will find themselves under severe, severe problems: More drought. More floods. Rising sea levels. Greater migration. More refugees. More scarcity. More conflict."Obama contended, "Any leader willing to take a gamble on a future like that, any leader who refuses to take this issue seriously or treats it like a joke, is not fit to lead."
And do I need to add that under these conditions not a single Republican candidate for President is fit to lead?
