Zoe Williams is worried that we are not doing enough to combat climate change. She concludes a column in the Guardian with this tid-bit (emphasis added):
How do we imbue the political cycle with some long-term thinking, some altruism, some care for future generations?So, if a tornado blows off you roof this weekend, there is someone out there who thinks it's a good thing. Presumably, the higher the death toll, the better.
What this situation needs is actual bad weather, actual negative events, that we can all see, that we can agree on the significance of, to spur us into action. In the meantime the answers are sitting there, waiting to happen.
