    For the full harrowing detail (clip below), see the Canberra Times…

    One researcher told of receiving threats of sexual assault and violence against her children after her photograph appeared in a newspaper article promoting a community tree-planting day as a local action to mitigate climate change.

    There’s probably a master’s thesis somewhere about the [usually male, usually old] denialists’ hatred of the fact that Nature (aka femaleness) has limits and is finally pushing back against exploitation, just like all those dreadful bra-burners did in the 1960s (collapse of family, Western civ, fill in Andrew Boltisms here….)

    That cartoon sums up a LOT of my thoughts about this debate:

    1. We are a dirty wasteful species.

    2. There are cleaner and less wasteful ways of living, and living well.

    3. If we make the changes in time, our grand children and great grandchildren
    will live in a cleaner and healthier world.

    4. If we don’t — they will suffer.

    More reason for the fire… Using a chart (a chart!) to help explain why we should do something.

    Alison, it’s a while since I last watched that video. It’s still compelling.

    Not on climate, but same pattern: do you remember what happened to the poor sod who was just trying to stop a zoo from putting down another cub, and ended up at the centre of the Knut storm?
