…the apocalyptic language surrounding the climate
has done a deep disservice to humanity.
It has led to incredibly wasteful and ineffectual spending.
The psychological costs have also been immense.
Many people, particularly younger ones,
live in fear that the end is nigh,
too often leading to debilitating depression
about the future.
A look at the facts would demolish
those apocalyptic anxieties.
