#ThrowBackToday: Why the Earth is heating up and who is responsible
In today's #TBT, we talk about the report about global warming that puts a lot into perspective. We also touch upon the first impeachment process of Donald Trump that started last year today
India is guilty. And so are Brazil, Britain, China, Germany, Russia and the US. Guilty of the greatest crime there is, as we and the countries aforementioned are responsible for 60 per cent of ALL the heat-trapping gas emissions made between the years 1750 and 2005. This study, which cities seven nations to be the top source of global warming, was done by Canadian researchers and reported on January 16, 2014.
Ironic that the first time round, it was on January 16 last year that the impeachment process of US President Donald Trump formally moved into its trial phase. And again, the talk about Trump's impeachment started doing the rounds when it was looking like the 45th President of the US wasn't ready to budge even after he lost the elections. All his tantrums and the horrific coup on the Capitol resulted in nothing.
Last year, Trump was accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his shady dealings with Ukraine with regards to Joe Biden, the President-elect. Lucky for him, he was acquitted by the Senate.
Today is also Appreciate a Dragon Day and National Nothing Day. Our advice is to celebrate the latter and just chill!
