Shortly after the news broke that Trump was going to back out of the climate agreement, the site replaced the top stories with a slew of panicked stories about the relentless march of climate change and the disastrous consequences that await the human race if it’s not slowed down or stopped.

That includes:

  • “Sad Day: Global Reaction to Trump’s Decision”
  • “Still don’t care? Proof you should”
  • “… and More Proof…”
  • “…and Even More Proof…”

They also go into bleak detail about consequences for specific places, including the end of a Hawaiian reef and watching Montana glaciers melting in front of our eyes.

As if knowing that last year was the hottest year on record — for the third year in a row — wasn’t enough.
