quote [ Food-system collapse, sea-level rise, disease. In his new book "Falter," Bill McKibben asks, "Is it Too Late?" ]
Happy Hump Day!
On a related note, the Netflix nature doc Our Planet is stunningly beautiful, explicitly acknowledges the threat humans pose to their home planet, and argues it's not yet too late.
Meanwhile, this bullshit is going on in Congress:
Is this the dumbest moment in Congressional history?
Answer: maybe, but it has a lot of competition. I'm not a fan of Kerry and generally find him impossible to listen to, but he's not stupid, he's very much in the right here, and he's unusually concise and on point in this hearing. And to his credit he also said, "Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has offered more leadership in one day or in one week than President Trump has in his lifetime on this subject [global warming]."
