Fevers of various kinds including ebola get folks put into quarantine. How about earth fever?

Quote:
Another organizer at COP 20 is the Nigerian environmental leader Nnimmo Bassey. He said: “Before I left Nigeria, my temperature was gauged twice, to determine if I have high fever or if I have Ebola. Now, the temperature of the Earth has gone 0.8 degrees above preindustrial levels. If the Earth was to go through the same process ... it would’ve been quarantined because the Earth would’ve been judged to have high fever or Ebola. But, we can’t quarantine the Earth. We need to find who are the climate criminals and quarantine them.”


Relatedly one wonders whether fossil fuel and overpopulation pushers will finally get a name they have earned - environmental terrorists.
