One of the things that pisses me off about the article linked below is that it appears to be written BY an American FOR Americans, and the temperature is still given in freaking CENTRIGRADE!
Not even a conversion in parentheses!
Folks, 2 degrees C is about 3.6 degrees F.
3oC is about 5.5oF.
If you’re going to try to impress readers with the gravity of the situation, don’t be elitist. Use numbers your entire audience will understand.
That’s my first gripe.
My second gripe is that the article practically waves a white flag of surrender.
Yes, the situation is getting worse, but it would be getting worse still, and faster, without the efforts being made in the places making them.
The article is right about preparing for the worst. But it surrenders the duality of also trying to make things better.
“The climate apocalypse is coming. To prepare for it, we need to admit that we can’t prevent it.”
