Re: The psychology of climate change
I’m with your Damnthematrix — anthropogenic climate change is obvious. What we don’t know is how bad things will get and how quickly. I tend towards pessimism in this regard. Thus far the pace of climate change has occured much quicker than scientists’ forcasts. I see no reason for this to change as scientists tend to err on the side of conservative forcasts. Moreoever, I don’t have much hope that the world will be able to get together to mount any sort of serious effort to mitigate climate change through limiting carbon emissions. I predict geo engineering will occur through utter desperation when things get really bad and folks demand that the government ‘does something’.
