Posts from the SSM thread about Climate Change have been moved here for discussion.
What a day when established religions, interfering in affairs of state, copped two upper cuts on the same day - never before and maybe never again. Same sex marriage passing in the Senate today and House of Reps to follow and the Victorian Government passing voluntary euthanasia legislation.

One major global policy is already underway with the Paris Agreement. Synthetic gas control alone will go a long way to stemming the average global temperature rise.
Even if Trump follows through on the withdrawal, there’s a US commonwealth of about 9 or 10 states (economically vital states like California, New York etc,) which will uphold the covenants of the PA with or without Trump’s support.
I’ll leave this for another thread however as it is sidetracking.
