Nicked from Pharyngula. The IPCC was wrong in being too conservative. I’d take this moment to point out that the denialists are empirically wrong on yet another point, but I’m too busy despairing.
The interconnectedness of all things is amazing, but daunting. We have so much responsibility vested in us by nature, by making it to the top of the food chain, and we’re probably the most irresponsible species on the planet. Either we grow up right now, or we die as a species and take much of the rest of the planet with us.
