Today’s blunt climate news in that article should kick honest and honourable policymakers into immediate action, with full support of the public who need to cast of their cynicism, put on their thinking caps and pull their socks up (as we were told when we were knee-high to grasshoppers ourselves and facing unprecedented challenges).
We have allowed the noble holders of power to linger and languish too long, leaving mendacious malevolent managers to oversee the world’s demise.
Prof King said there was much more chance of action on climate as President Bush was approaching the end of his term of office.
He said the US government climate strategist James Connaughton had positively obstructed progress on tackling climate change.
So, my question is: when Bush goes, does Connaughton go too?
