the earth is warming--I should expect by now, unless you are in some hopeless denialist state that even I can't reach. In which case--why are you even at my blog? Shoo!
But here is the problem we're butting up against--our carbon output is cumulative and endures long after we stop dumping it into the atmosphere. So there is a very real probability that the climate impacts of doing nothing, which is basically the current strategy if you look at it in the right light--are irreversible.
See, there are technologies like solar panels and wind farms that we have right now that, if massively implemented, would be sustainable energy sources that don't contribute to carbon output. It's actually within a plausible thought that governments could agree to implement technologies that reduce greenhouse gas outputs. Our weather might be kinda jacked-up in the short run, but in the long run, we have lots of species on this planet surviving that might not have. That would be a good thing.
But since we are stupid as a species we elect people who deny science and common sense.
Upshot? If you care about the environment at all, think lesser evil please? Thanks.
