5. We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change, and the last generation that can do something about it.

  6. But protest marches — even massive ones — do not translate neatly or reliably into public policy goals or changing public opinion. Sometimes they are forgotten nearly as soon as they end. So what happens now?

    400,000 Americans marched for climate justice. Now what?

    They’d better start winning some elections


  7. It’s time to declare war on climate change — literally
    Mobilizing all the U.S.’s resources will not only stave off catastrophic global warming, but also encourage innovation and economic progress

  8. If humans cause climate change, ‘why did the dinosaurs go extinct?’

  9. John Oliver and Bill Nye show the right way to debate climate science

    Oliver had Nye on to discuss man-caused global warming with a skeptic, but he made sure that this time the debate is statistically representative. Like most things on Last Week Tonight, it’s funnier than it sounds.


  10. Will the vanity of centrists doom us to climate disaster?

    Knee-jerk moderation is not the same thing as sensible risk management



  12. Modern human civilization is fragile — fragile to crop failures, droughts, and extreme weather. We are extremely susceptible to energy and water shortages. We don’t fully understand complex, chaotic systems like Earth’s climate. And yet, we are rapidly changing the composition of the atmosphere, even though the archeological record shows the difficulty that our ancestors had in adapting to previous rapid climate changes.

    That seems suicidally reckless.
