Warming Wednesdays: human inventiveness makes optimism possible

Andrew Revkin writes the Dot Earth blog tracking climate change and our responses for the New York Times. He's a charming, cheerful guy ...

Engagement ... is step one ... we have a stunning capacity to dis-invent and invent resources ...we can surprise ourselves.

we have been in a bi-partisan slumber party for decades ... if we get that back into gear, then I have a lot of confidence ...

Watch this. It will do your heart good. Then remember that to be human is to be an animal that makes its destiny. We can confront the challenges of the Anthropocene, if we dare to engage.

Despite every other legitimate concern, we cannot ignore that our economic and social system is rapidly making the planet less habitable. So I will be posting "Warming Wednesdays" -- reminders of that inconvenient truth.
