An Inconvenient Truth
The truth about the climate crisis is an inconvenient one that means we are going to have to change the way we live our lives.

Our climate crisis may at times appear to be happening
slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly - and has
become a true planetary emergency. The Chinese expression
for crisis consists of two characters. The first is a symbol
for danger; the second is a symbol for opportunity. In order
to face down the danger that is stalking us and move through
it, we first have to recognize that we are facing a crisis.
So why is it that our leaders seem not to hear such clarion
warnings? Are they resisting the truth because they know
that the moment they acknowledge it, they will face a moral
imperative to act? Is it simply more convenient to ignore
Perhaps, but inconvenient truths do not go away just because
they are not seen. Indeed, when they are not responded to,
their significance doesn't diminish; it grows.
