We Are All Saudi Arabians

A new report surfaced today that confirms what we’ve been saying all along: No country in the world is willing to sacrifice economic growth to fight climate change.

The Climate Action Network, an environmental advocacy group, this week released the Climate Change Performance Index, a ranking of states based on their efforts to stop global warming.

Because “not a single country is to be judged as satisfactory with regard to protecting the climate,” the Index leaves blank the top three spots. 

Sweden was ranked #4. The United States finished third from last. Saudi Arabia finished dead last.
