More than at any other time in the history of human presence on this planet, we are now deciding what our own future will be.
Since the last ice age, some 12,000 years ago, humans have been able to develop civilization as we know it thanks to the stability of the earth’s interconnected ecosystems, which cradled life and supported our expansion. During this era, the Holocene, humans flourished but nature reigned. We were the thriving recipients of a favorable environment unique in the history of the planet.
But around 1950, the situation changed. We moved from being the passive recipients to being the direct driving force behind transformation in our natural environment, and not for the better. We now exercise such control over the planet that we have catapulted it and ourselves into a new geological era, known as the Anthropocene: the human-shaped epoch, in which the pen of history has been passed from nature to humanity, and we are the ones determining what will be written.
In just 70 short years, we collectively ignored all the scientific warnings about the dangers that would ensue. Decades of extraction and overconsumption, the accumulation of great wealth in small pockets of society, and general disregard for our role as guardians of the global commons have altered the earth’s atmosphere, land, and oceans so substantially that we are literally living ourselves out of our life-providing environment. This is the most perilous moment in human history.
Without a doubt, we are in the decisive decade. We must be guided by the firm conviction that humans can meet this challenge. We must change the unfolding story of the Anthropocene from one of overconsumption, inequality, and destruction to one of repair, re-generation, and reconnection—against all apparent odds.

Do what we tell you, peons.
We have to act now or it will be too late again.
By Klaus Schwab in his Alpine Retreat Davos ?
What a bunch of presumptuous self-righteous idiots that think they can change the climate of the entire planet..............
It’s a cult.
“You’ll have nothing and like it!”
In their mansions and private jets.
The Planet has like 17 different climates but to them it’s just one ,LOL
What a stupid delusional headline.
Delusional is the idea that man determines what the weather will be.
Next will be the delusion that man created everything.
Strong delusion coming soon: man is more powerful than God and will defeat God in an epic battle. You can read the outcome of that strong delusion in Revelation Chapter 19 - it’s called “Armageddon” and God wins. Imagine that.
Back in the 60s, when I was a yout, a wise man told me “you can’t even believe the page numbers in Time magazine”.
“A what? Did you say ‘yout’?”
Fond remembrance of El Rushbo.
More massive bullsh!t from the climate scam industry.
the greatest fraud in the history of the world
I thought you were referencing My Cousin Vinny.
Or, was Rush referencing that as well?
We should all choose Jesus to determine "what our own future will be". Our Modern Warm Period isn't the warming we should fear.
