A Short Column with a Big Idea
September 21, 2023
If we don’t treat our addiction to fossil fuels with desperate urgency, we will be severely punished, rightfully so, by Mother Nature. Her disciplining has already begun. It will continue to escalate, unless we help ourselves.
Sadly, those least responsible for humankind’s bad behavior — the indigent, the Global South, the rest of the living things we share this planet with, with the possible exception of belching bovines, and the future — feel the brunt of our addiction.
Perhaps it is time to pull our collective heads out of the tar sands and actually think of the children.
Just a thought.
