06 April 2018 | A Little Cold Fact about Climate Change
Itâ€™s too late.
Truth is, serious climate change strategies should have been tackled 10-15 **years ago**, because honestly, itâ€™s too late. Thereâ€™s no way around it. People keep acting like you can do something because itâ€™s juuuuust far enough past your extended arm that it can be fixed. Corrected. Avoided. Whatever.
It is already too late to think you can prevent this. So while thereâ€™s still the super minority of people who reject climate change, there appears to be a very large group of people in denial that the event horizon has been crossed. And contrary to your fervered Hollywood-inspired ideas, civilization does not merely â€œgo off a cliff.â€ Youâ€™re already in the decline of such. It accumulates but it does not have a distinct beginning or dramatic end. In other words, no one living 2,000 years ago said, â€œHey, weâ€™re in the intertestamental period!â€ Thatâ€™s a fiction for the sake of convenience. You live throughout it without the nice benefit of waking up one day and saying, â€œAh, everything has changed this morning."
As Ms. Tilda Swinton said in â€œConstantineâ€: Youâ€™re f*cked.
