I wonder how many Australians still feel that we are in a ‘climate emergency’?
To my mind this climate emergency is ongoing.
I have the feeling that our politicians treat us mostly as though we were children. They try to keep us in the dark as much as possible. But I think even children should not be treated like this. When children notice, they have been conned, they do feel terrible. Most children notice eventually that they have been lied to. I do not believe that this makes them feel better.
I realize of course that there are quite a few adults who want to put off facing the truth. These adults do not seem to mind a few lies just to keep them going. I keep thinking about global warming. It seems to me. to have to put up with warming of 2C, is something that is more or less already a given and requires enormous adjustments all over the world. We could at least aim to not let it go further than 2C. For that we desperately need leadership of corporations and governments!
