Net Out Of Jail Free
There’s a new game in town for climate delayers. It’s called ‘net zero’. The misery of those who bore the brunt of Storm Dennis this week and Storm Ciara the week before foretells a future in which the weather will be throwing much more volatility humanity’s way.
The much-discussed ‘Greta Thunberg effect’ has opened up the debate about what has come to be known as the climate emergency. Storms Ciara and Dennis will have opened this debate wider still.
You would have thought the time for obfuscation is over. But there’s a new game in town for those who still think there’s time left for business as usual. It’s called ‘net zero by 2050’ and it’s prevalence shows how many of those with power and influence still don’t really ‘get’ climate change.
