“Much as I approve of the “green” focus - global warming isn’t the problem. Warming is a. probably going to happen with or without humans and b. not the main problem anyway. The real ecopocalypse deal is the mass extinction, pollution, deforestion, over-fishing and otherwise destruction of the natural world. If there are lots of species around, the ecosphere can cope with great changes, including warming, like it has done before now; but with the great removal of life, due to human incompetence and failure to manage ourselves and the resources we rely upon, then we’re really up that creek without much of anything let alone a paddle. Peace, etc.”
