the grim reality is that our planet has reached a point of crisis and we have only seven years before we lose the levers of control. As the President of Gabon said at a meeting I hosted last month, “The door to our future is closing…” This, I fear, is not an overstatement. For climate change is a risk-multiplier. It has the potential to take all the other critical issues we face as a global community and transform their severity into a cataclysm…We appear intent upon consuming the planet!
We are highly skeptical of AGW, but of course at the end of the day we may be wrong. However, all this talk of the imminent end of the world as we know it seems like a sort of religious hysteria to us. We agree with Roger Simon that our current age now bears some unfortunate resemblance to medieval times and superstitions.
