Main-Stream-Media Awakens to Perils of Abrupt Climate Change? – Paul Beckwith

A lot can happen in a day. Things can turn on a dime. Has this just happened? David Wallace-Wells wrote a great article in nymag.com recently on “The Uninhabitable Earth”.

Media around the world carried parts of it, and a number of scientists chimed in. Many people said the article is too apocalyptic. I say that the article is spot on.

Civilization, more correctly humanity is going down big time, on our current path. Abrupt climate change all but guarantees that. Unless we collectively change course by:

1) Declare a global climate emergency.

2) Deploy technologies to remove carbon from the atmosphere &/or oceans.

3) Deploy technologies to cool the Arctic.

Beckwith also published another video on the jetstream.

  1. Hello there. The course collective (and rapid) course corrections listed are all good: what about addressing the cultural foundations of this civilization while we’re at it?

    Without questioning the economic philosophy, ie. capitalism, and presenting potentially workable alternatives (no guarantees!), well-heeled business leaders like Elon Musk will distract people away from our collective responsibility.
