Wired Magazine’s Spencer Reiss advises “Climate Change is Inevitable. Get Used To It.”
It is, however, easier to be right about the first part than sanguine about the second. Rather than putting our energies into limiting or reversing the central problem of greenhouse gas emission, Reiss would have us concentrate on “adaptation,” designing and siting houses well away from rising tides and putting our farming faith in Monsanto.
He concludes: “We’re in charge here” – invoking a level of hubris that may be more frightening than climate change itself.
