Climate Change Inevitable
While climate change is indeed inevitable, the question is whether it will be deadly or manageable is far from resolved. As the science underlying climate change has become indisputable, it is fascinating to witness the new weak rationales of those unwilling to tackle the difficult task of placing modern society on an energy diet. These obstructionists have gone from saying climate change is not happening, to saying it is but we just need to adapt. But with the possibility that climate changes could be much more extreme than ecosystems can handle, this may be deadly to human civilizations. Yes climate change is inevitable, yes we need to adapt, but this does not alleviate the need to embrace ambitious energy conservation, emissions cuts and renewable energy subsidies to ensure the inevitable change falls within the range that is survivable.
