Over half of Americans believe global warming will have little to no impact on their lives. Mann is talking an alternate universe where over half of everyone keeps silent. It's like saying if no Donald voters turned up, Hillary would already be president.

The sad fact is that we mostly are only concerned with ourselves. There are people in other countries whose lives can be saved with meager amounts of money, but most of us don't do anything about it. Since that's the case, why would we bother keeping global warming from harming them, as long as we're ok?
