Denial – not just a (shrinking) river in Egypt

Jury’s still out on climate change!

Every time I read about climate change, I get R.E.M stuck in my head. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and everyone else seems to feel fine.

George Monbiot wrote another excellent article, which starts “There are no comparisons to be made. This is not like war or plague or a stockmarket crash. We are ill-equipped, historically and psychologically, to understand it, which is one of the reasons why so many refuse to accept that it is happening.”

Why is this not on the evening news? Why is this not the number one priority of every Government on Earth? Why do most people still seem unaware this is happening?
