Clive James, poet, writer, realist about man-made global warming: Newcomers to this site will soon discover, I hope, that it is meant to be rather more than an archive of my own work. It started out that way, but merciful Providence intervened to remind me that my belated brain-wave might be more useful if I could put a lifetime’s experience as a cultural critic to a new use, and so offer a critical guide, through the next medium, to works of thought and art by other people, and sometimes in other eras. The only criterion for inclusion would be intensity of expression, with the aim of creating, in this latterday Babelic flux we call the web, an island of quality where every word is meant, and every image meaningful. https://www.clivejames.com/
Why Apocalytic Claims About Climate Change Are Wrong (Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress) USofA27.Nov.2019
Michael Shellenberger, Founder - President of Environmental Progress: Environmental journalists and advocates have in recent weeks made a number of apocalyptic predictions about the impact of climate change. Bill McKibben suggested climate-driven fires in Australia had made koalas “functionally extinct.” Extinction Rebellion said: “Billions will die” and “Life on Earth is dying.” Vice claimed the “collapse of civilization may have already begun.” Few have underscored the threat more than student climate activist Greta Thunberg and Green New Deal sponsor Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. There is good evidence that the catastrophist framing of climate change is self-defeating because it alienates and polarizes many people. (Note, John Shanahan: The man-made global warming alarmists could also be just plain wrong that fossil fuels are a major source of global warming. See Ed Berry's articles and over 450 other articles on this website challenging the alarmists. Look under the main tab, ENVIRONMENT.)
