"The world doesn't need saving."

September 19, 2019

I met a smart Canadian businessman at a free music night (there are a lot of those here, in the summertime) in Omaha, who told me this.

 

I couldn't believe my ears, because I knew him to be kind -- or at least calculating, anyway; he took me on his sailboat and we got to know each other. He has children who will no doubt want to have children; surely he doesn't want them to inherit a disaster.

 

I don't -- cannot -- will not -- understand self-serving individuals in power who refuse to see what's coming, not just by word of opinion but in pure scientific facts.

 

And the self-destruction we are bringing on ourselves isn't decades away; we are already having to research ways to mitigate and adapt to this brave new climate world we've wrought.
