‘The choice is ours (but) time is running out’

As for man being the master of the Earth, let me remind you of the truth that all of biological and social human history is only a transient expression of the Earth and its biosphere.

What should be obvious is that we are in the midst of a global social, political, economic and environmental disintegration of mind-numbing depth and extent. In short, we are in a global environmental collapse that is a linear, more or less gradual decline until the threshold of total collapse is reached, at which point a mass extinction occurs.

There is a lot we can still do to arrest and mitigate the catastrophic events we must endure. A Green New Deal, based on sound social and environmentally just policies, is an essential first step. The choice is ours. Time is running out.
