  1. “As the climate crisis continues to show its hand ― through catastrophic fires, scorching summers, powerful hurricanes and melting Arctic ice ― a debate rages as to how we should respond. Some, recently Jonathan Franzen writing in The New Yorker, suggest we should accept what they say is now an unstoppable, impending catastrophe. But many others, from scientists to those taking part in the global climate strikes this week and next, say there is still hope. 

    Those advocating optimism can find support in a new study, published on Thursday, which says that the world can halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 if it concentrates on 36 key solutions, including solar and wind power, electric cars and reduced red meat consumption.

    The Exponential Climate Action Roadmap, compiled by 55 experts across science, academia, policy and consultancy, aims to serve as a plan of action to keep the world within 1.5 degrees Celcius of warming (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit), consistent with the target set in the Paris climate change agreement to keep global temperature rises well below 2 degrees C (3.6 F). Beyond this, the possibility of the world tipping into unstoppable and catastrophic climate change becomes much more likely.

    **These ideas are not new, and many are already happening. It’s the pace of change that’s the problem.**”

    We solved the hole in the ozone layer at the poles. If we can raise our level of commitment and resolve **now** we have a chance to mitigate this unfolding crisis. Capitalists must participate though.

  2. They know we’re right in the middle of a season of Peaky Blinders right? EPL season just started and new iPhones are coming out too.

  3. Nuclear energy. Wind and solar are great and we should continue to pursue them, but if it’s as bad as everyone says we need to ramp up nuclear.

  4. Let me guess, all 36 are some variation of “give various agencies and people huge piles of money for nebulous programs that won’t actually ever have to show or produce quantifiable results”, “surrender more of your rights”, or “the bottom 70% should live like serfs in cramp capsule apartments in violent, crowded shit hell cities, while the elite will continue to have private jets, security, limos, and eat steak every night in their 100+ acres estates.”
