Outdated concepts like hope

Interesting- useful –  to talk with people who still have it – who still need to have it.

[Does Vader impression "The Enlightenment assumptions are strong in this one."]

I hope, of course, I am wrong, but I don’t see our little island being saved from the messes it created.  I don’t see our children thanking us for having been born.

More later.

    McKibben’s take is what I’m going by these days…

    excerpt: “The only stance for a moral human being when the worst thing on earth is happening is to get up in the morning and figure out how you can change those odds.”

    excerpt:
    “McKibben closed his November speech at UBC with the following words:

    “There’s no guarantee we’ll win the fight against climate change. There are scientists who think we’ve waited too long to get started in this fight, and there is too much momentum behind this heating. There are political scientists who think the odds are simply too high; there’s too much money piled on the other side. If you were a betting person you might be wise to bet with them because we’ve been losing more or less for twenty years. But that is not a bet you are allowed to make. The only stance for a moral human being when the worst thing on earth is happening is to get up in the morning and figure out how you can change those odds.”
