"Wholesale environmental chaos" is already here but it's only just begun. People who do not yet perceive the changes that are happening soon will, and it will not be possible to deny the reality of what's going on, but by then it may be too late to take effective remedial action,
Best pay attention to what's being done to and with the refugees in Eastern Europe: how are they fed? How is fundamental sanitation maintained? What basic ingredients are needed to prevent huge gatherings of human beings from turning into a mass catastrophic disease spreading die off? Can essential medications be stockpiled someplace so they will be available when needed? Will military type actions be necessary to prevent panic and hopeless from leading to behaviors that will worsen everything? How will communication be handled among people of many languages?
These are just some of the questions that need to start being asked now if not sooner and the answers made available to those who are willing to volunteer to coordinate and assist the climate refugees that many of us soon may be.
