reminded me so much of the way I had been thinking about global warming / Climate Change.
Firstly let us bin the term Global Warming once and for it it is Climate change, man made or not it is happening and we have to tackle it. Doing nothing is no longer an option, if you have a spare 10 minutes please watch this video, this chap is far more eloquent than I will ever hope to be.
Climate change is the common enemy the world has to fight, we can turn all our skills and resources on it much as the world joined forces to defeat fascism during WW2. The war also assisted the USA by bringing the economy back to full employment for the war effort helping it lift itself out of the throws of the Great Depression. We may not avert any climate change that may now be out of our hands but we will be well prepared to thrive under whatever new conditions climate change throws at us, at the same time keeping many people gainfully employed in the process.
Now is the time to act.
