quote [ ?There is very little good news in the report,? reads the AFP dispatch, ?but the IPCC stresses that much can be done to avoid worst-case scenarios and prepare for impacts that can no longer be averted?. But simply swapping a gas guzzler for a Tesla or planting billions of trees to offset business-as-usual isn?t going to cut it, the report warns.?

?We need transformational change operating on processes and behaviours at all levels: individual, communities, business, institutions and governments,? reads the IPCC report. ?We must redefine our way of life and consumption.? ]

Stay cool, folks over in the PNW!
