New Yorker: Is It Too Late to Prepare for Climate Change?

"A leaked draft of an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report was apparently intended to embarrass the authors, but it seems to have had the opposite effect; what the leaked document shows is just how dire the impacts are likely to be."

 

Amongst other statements, the report says that "global warming could reduce agricultural production by as much as 2 percent each decade for the rest of this century"... while global food demand may rise by as much as 14% each decade. Furthermore, starvation, flooding, war and disease are likely to worsen as the world warms.

 

The report is officially scheduled for release next March.

So I wonder about our hearts. Have we ignored our emotional and spiritual connections to the planet? Could the noise swirling around climate change—science, politics, media blitzes, as well as the weather disasters themselves—drown out the voice of a loss so profound that it rests unnamed in our souls? Could our breaking hearts be part of the reason we are immobilized?
