So I’ve just read a Pulitzer-prize winning-writer’s account that we don’t have to worry after all. The scientists had been confused — the earth is just having one of those normal up-ticks in temperature it has every hundred millenia or so. And human activity has nothing to do with it.
Sometimes in my life I have been so happy to have found I was wrong about something. I wish I was wrong about global warming, and the moral imperative to change the way we are consuming fossil fuels. But I’m not. It’s real, and we do have to change.
