Paul Beckwith Slays Hope Meme Dragon
Climate Scientist Sides Paul Beckwith With New York Magazine, Stands Against Peers – YouTube – I admire his determined courage, scientists are worse than teens when it comes to peer pressure.
Doomsday narratives about climate change don’t work. But here’s what does – Guardian – Britain’s version of fake liberal news comes out against the New York Magazine article to say only hope is not fake news. They say doom = inaction. This is soft censorship of doom by saying, Hopelessness = Inaction. I pity the poor fuckers for thinking that way because accepting the hopelessness of our predicament rationalizes and economizes my future behavior. We already suffer too much inaction from the Hopey Changey Thing, and it’s evil twin, the Deniey Thing. The only people who fight change think they’re rich, as in Me and Mine and fuck the world.
