Obama does Paris: This summer I saw the effects of climate change firsthand in our northern-most state Alaska. Where the sea is already swallowing villages and eroding shorelines. Where permafrost thaws and the tundra burns. Where glaciers are melting at a pace unprecedented in modern times. And it was a preview of one possible future, a glimpse of our children’s fate if climate keeps changing faster than our efforts to address it. Submerged countries, abandoned cities, fields that no longer grow.
And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
