We forget about the many generations we hope are yet to come. Not those who will live 200 years from now, but 1,000 or 10,000 years from now.
We face risks, called existential risks, that threaten to wipe out humanity. These risks are not just for big disasters, but for the disasters that could end history.
We face an unprecedented moment in this country. Today’s greatest threat is not climate change, not pollution, not flood or fire. It is that we have got people in charge of important shit who do not believe in science.
If we do not stop the destruction of nature, nothing else will matter. Jobs will not matter, our economies will not matter, our freedoms and ethics will not matter, our children’s education and potential will not matter.
The mass reversal of environmental and climate policies designed to draw down both pollution and greenhouse gases is bad enough, but this administration is doing something truly unprecedented: attacking the scientists and the fundamentals of science themselves.
Though 97% of climate scientists agree that global warming is a real phenomenon that poses great threats, the american administration has downplayed the veracity that global warming is real and worrisome.
To make matters worse, the american administration has not just ignored the science – it has attacked scientists.
