    For decades I have been expressing optimism that for the first time in history the entire human race has a common cause (confronting the climate emergency)


    But that optimism is wearing thin as evidence confronts us that blind greed and selfishness persist undiminished as apparently inherent human characteristics (perhaps inevitable in any winner in the game of evolution?) and secondly that humans have an almost limitless capacity to close their minds to ‘inconvenient’ truths that they don’t want to believe (not a good characteristic for ‘intelligent’ species hoping to continue their success.)
