Re: Climate change - politics and activism

...I personally believed in Climate Change 30 years ago after viewing some theories of James Lovelock. Since then, I adjusted my lifestyle and my use of fossil fuels. Personally, not only can I lead by example, but I would also be in a position to non-hypocritically make suggestions to children abo...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

Greetings Kim, Here's a key quote for those of us who have a personal stake in the future, i.e., have children: Rather, that's a quote by someone who admits to being overcome by fury. By identifying with that statement (i.e. "those of us"), are you saying you share that same fury of someone who, to...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

What is abundantly clear through your protest is that you expect people to read the resources you bring to this topic, but cannot demonstrate the civility of doing likewise. :toilet: Kind regards. :candle: I do, though - read , that is. But I read much faster than people talk so I generally don't w...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

If you don't think that's reasonable, you have far more free time in your life than I have in mine. Interesting how you have more than 5 minutes to protest why you cannot watch a 5 minute video. Kind regards. :candle: Ah, but 5 minutes spent on gardening, on protesting, on meditating, on yoga, on c...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

Greetings Kim, I wouldn't trust his climate science even if he wasn't in the pay of those who benefit from denialism. Yet you clamor fervently onto anything produced by those "in the pay of those who benefit from" climate alarmism, including the UN, the EU, The Guardian, ABC, CNN, New York Times, W...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

Greetings Kim, Our timeframe for escaping climate catastrophe is now on the order of ten years. If we haven't cut global emissions by 50% before 2030 (both of those are ballpark figures) we will have so many other problems that the system will likely collapse. That's all very dramatic. :console: Ye...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

This article is ten years old but, sadly, not at all out of date. And it makes Franzen's point even more strongly than he does: it's time to admit that we are not going to win the war against climate change, so that we can focus on the more realistic task of minimising its inevitable effects. But he...

Re: Climate change - politics and activism

Greetings, this is a Buddhist forum so I ask you to assess each of the actions which Franzen recommends according to their agreement with the dhamma. Given what those recommendations are, this all seems highly irrelevant to a topic on "Climate change - politics and activism"... :focus: Kind regards...
