Foghorn (A Call to Action!)
- The new IPCC Climate Change Report is out and it is grim. With very little time left to hold back the worst outcomes of global warming, we need a massive multi-national coordinated effort at a scale that we have never before even attempted. The clock is ticking and the time for wishful thinking and hopeful platitudes is over. We’ve got a decade to pull off something currently unimaginable.
- I echo David Robert’s concerns that the current political climate, and not just in the US, is directly opposed to making lasting climate solutions.
- And yes, this is a dark, dark report. There’s no hearty, feel-good dose of Earth Optimism today. Maybe it’s discouraging. Maybe you just want to curl up in a ball and hide from the world. Well too bad. You haven’t earned the right to give up. None of us have.
That’s it. There is nothing else.
