Just listened to a brilliant author on a podcast discussing our collective failure to address climate change over the last 70 years or so. The issue was a story element in his latest novel, so it was something he’d thought about deeply. The host asked him what he’d concluded, and his response was both honest and chilling.
“What do I really think? I don’t want to say what I really think.”
It was obvious they were friends. “C’mon, just say it…”
“What I think is we’re too stupid to live.”
