Climate scientists have failed to meet their social responsibilities: to clearly, fully, and accurately inform society about the GHG crisis.
I am a 71-year-old thinker who sees his death on the horizon. I therefore want to confess my greatest sin: when analyzing the ecological crisis I have committed thoughtcrimes.
If you are concerned about the ecological crisis you undoubtedly know that, four decades ago, Exxon scientists warned about “potentially catastrophic events” from rising concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs). You are presumably outraged that the corporation buried these warnings and then funded disinformation campaigns to prevent rational action.
The young need an advocate to protect their ecological interests. Currently they are at the mercy of older generations who are protecting the status quo.
Fixating on emissions reductions is ecocidal. The young must demand the rational strategy: block the Sun, minimize emissions, and remove unsafe gases.
