An outstanding statement of brutal facts coupled with urgency and hope! Thank you, Professor Maguire.
When I read something this good and true, even when it is frighteningly serious, I feel a bit more hopeful. I wish that the determined denialists would read it, even though I know that they would counter it with some BS about “Jobs”, as though the only way for “jobs” to exist is to keep doing what we’ve been doing, and do it some more. More fossil fuel extraction and consumption. More continued reliance on century-old technologies of waste and ecosystem destruction. Eventually, if certain climate tipping points are passed, jobs and paper profits will lose their luster.
