Climate Change – 2 Optimistic Messages

This week I was somewhat preoccupied with sports. Perhaps in reaction to all the Grey Cup coverage over the last couple of weeks. I am not the biggest sports fan, but live in a place where sports can dominate the media, the news I read, and the radio I listen to. The highs and lows of sports offer welcome relief from the really serious stuff that normally preoccupies me, climate change. ...

1 Problem with Climate Change Dollars and Sense

Today, I want to discuss climate change dollars and sense.

Human caused climate change is real. Those of us that work in climate change have long since dealt with our doubts about it. In previous videos I shared some of my own struggles coming to grips with this. It is a big idea. The world is big and we are so small. How can the idea that we are causing climate change ever be credible?

    One interesting trend I have noticed is the move away from calling this issue “climate change” to calling it “the climate crisis”. This reflects an increasingly serious take on the issue as evidenced by the IPCC’s messaging (the 1.5oC limit and running out of time to keep temperature below this limit), younger people becoming engaged and the unfair intergenerational aspect of it all, and more wild weather linked to the climate crisis. Not just terminology – a real shift in in our understanding and response to this problem. A good sign I would say!

  • I agree. I find the anger both disturbing and justified. We have been working on this issue for almost thirty years now, and we are still engaging in arguments with folks that deny the very fact of climate change. The younger folks have every reason to be angry, we are handing them a mess. As always, really appreciate your input Don.
