Charles, I cannot get over what a tour de force this piece is! You hit this article out of the park.
I've read thousands of high-quality articles about climate change and related issues; this is perhaps the best piece I've read. And I don't say that lightly.
Thank you for brilliantly sharing your ideas and eloquently summarizing the essential question we face as a civilization in one masterfully written article.
As someone who frequently contemplates and writes about these issues, I simply can't express how amazed I am at the quality of this piece.
To anyone who might be reading this comment:
Think long and hard about what Charles is saying. Reread this piece if you must. Consider the world you want to live in and compare it to the world we live in now.
Which future will you choose?
I like the one Charles proposes.
And I bet/hope you will too.
