We have seen the future, and it sucks.

For the Love of Earth, Stop Traveling

Read it.

Jack Miles, a Pulitzer Prize and MacArthur “genius” award-winning author, was a contributor to the University of California’s “Bending the Curve” report on climate stability. His forthcoming book is “God in the Koran” (Alfred A. Knopf 2018). 

So what we have here is your basic Child of the Crust.

According to former U.N. climate chief Christiana Figueres, we have only three years left in which to “bend the emissions curve downward” and forestall a terrifying cascade of climate-related catastrophes, much worse than what we’re already experiencing.

These are the famous ‘well, we’ll just fudge the figures until they support our panic attack’ guys.

Realistically, is there anything that you or I can do as individuals to make a significant difference in the short time remaining?

Yeah — don’t believe the bullshit that comes out of the U.N. or any of its transnational catamites.

The answer is yes, and the good news is it won’t cost us a penny. It will actually save us money, and we won’t have to leave home to do it. Staying home, in fact, is the essence of making a big difference in a big hurry. That’s because nothing that we do pumps carbon dioxide into the atmosphere faster than air travel. Cancel a couple long flights, and you can halve your carbon footprint. Schedule a couple, and you can double or triple it.

I’m on it. Ball’s in your court, AlGore.
