Climate Change -- Worst Case Scenarios. Can Something Be Done?
a few days ago, I read a very interesting essay entitled The Uninhabitable Earth written by the American journalist David
Wallace-Wells, who interviewed several top-level climate scientists – among
them some who had actually discovered global
warming, climate change and related facts in the 1980s and thereafter. In
his essay the author summarizes what he heard from these scientists
and what he read on the subject. In it he depicts the worst-case
scenarios that would become reality if the worst fears of the climate
scientists come true.
The essay has gone viral, has been
read by over 2 Million people and commented on by over 400 people including
myself. I think all political activists and, especially, those leaders in
politics and the media who make or influence policy, should read it.
I admire the author for writing this
important text. But I also find it deficient in its concluding part, in which
he only repeats the technological optimism of scientists and engineers.
I have today posted the links to the essay
of Wallace-Wells and the text of my comment entitled Climate Change – The Worst-Case Scenarios.

I hope you too will find the post
important and interesting. I would also be much obliged if you forward it to other
politically interested people.
