“Enjoy life while you can. Because if you’re lucky it’s going to be 20 years before it hits the fan.”
James Ephraim Lovelock CH CBE FRS (26 July 1919 – 26 July 2022)
Lovelock said this in 2008. He’s been pretty correct so far. I think we can safely say it’s starting to hit the fan now.
We can’t now do much to alleviate the problems over the next ten years, and only extremely drastic action may mitigate the situation after that. But I really can’t see that happening.
I believe the very rich and powerful establishment figures have accepted that climate change is inevitable, and their number one priority is to ensure that they will be safe.
I think calling this site “2045” was rather optimistic.
