The latest climate news is that we have about 10 or 12 years left in which to get our act together. This means nothing to Trump and his cast of misfit toys who ignore these warnings and dismiss them as just the latest left-wing fever dream.
Maybe this is our fate. We go down without a fight. We consume until we fall into an irreversible coma. We default to survival mode and deteriorate to the point of societal collapse at the hands of powerful people with their fingers in their ears humming “la, la, la…”
At this point, it looks like our only hope is a serious grassroots belt-tightening. Because the people in positions of influence, who have the power to do something cooperatively with the rest of the world, can’t be bothered.
