I like the Walrus best," said Alice, “because you see he was a little sorry for the poor oysters.”
“He ate more than the Carpenter, though,” said Tweedledee. “You see he held his handkerchief in front, so that the Carpenter couldn’t count how many he took: contrariwise.”
If you call a scientist to a forest fire, she’ll measure the height of the flames. A firefighter will try to contain the fire with the goal of putting the fire out. Assuming that we act as the adults in the room if nobody else cares to volunteer, my goal is to form a climate-fighting engineering organization dedicated to the practical research and development of improvements for inhibiting and reversing the Arctic meltdown, for displacing gigatons of greenhouse gas emissions, for removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and for preventing species extinctions. We need perhaps 1000 engineers on board within ten years. We need lab space too. Failure to deliver on this easy goal is a pretty clear sign that a particular public servant is serving somebody other than the public.
