Climate change is real, and we are about out of time to avoid the consequences of not doing what needed to be done if we indeed love our children, including the unborn. The opponent, the obstacle we have failed to overcome, is ‘self’. At a time when we should have been coming together and focusing on what we have in common, for starters a common need for a healthy planet, all relentlessly promoted differences between us.
“All identities are bankrupt.” (Allen Ginsberg in a message to the Hell’s Angels.)
If we fail to address climate change, it will not be because we didn’t know, and didn’t have the means to act in time, it will be a spiritual failure. The struggle for action on climate is a war for the soul of humanity. At stake is our existence.
