Climate change denial is intellectual cowardice. There’s no other meaningful way to name it. It’s a vast and often willful misunderstanding of ecology that hinges on the teleological argument that our planet is an infinite resource, unaffected by any of its constituent species. It is the kind of powerful tautology that could actually end our current ecological balance. All it takes is the right persuasive voices spinning the narrative for political gains.
From my understanding, we have roughly 15 years at our current pace of carbon production to keep the planetary temperature from rising 2° C, at which point we begin to see the irrevocable super heating of the planet and systemic collapse.
Also, it's so hot outside.
