that Homo sapiens have ever faced.

We must change almost everything in our current societies.

Adults keep saying:
“We owe it to the young people to give them hope.”
...
But I don’t want your hope.
I don’t want you to be hopeful.
...
I want you to panic.
I want you to feel the fear I feel every day.
...
And then I want you to act.
I want you to act as you would in a crisis.
...
I want you to act as if our house is on fire.
Because it is.

we must first accept reality.

...
People are working on effective and innovative solutions.

The world is finally beginning to act.

Our current efforts for climate mitigation are proof of concept

nothing more

Sorry, but CO2 continues to climb, in fact is accelerating.

Solar and wind contribution are in the very small percentages.

We are very close to doing nothing, perhaps close to epsilon as epsilon approaches zero.

We are facing corporations and governments that will not budge.

They want to build their economy, wealth and military
and fossil fuels are a key part of that.
