Climate change is not the only threat to our plants

We should definitely take the climate issue seriously, but when it comes to biodiversity, there are other threats that are at least as important to consider, says Johan Ehrlén, professor at the Department of Ecology, Environment and Botany (DEEP) at Stockholm University” (my translation from the Swedish press release).

Yes! This perfectly sums up what has been bugging me about the otherwise great thing of more and more people waking up the the problems of global warming. Because, if we only focus on that threat we run a huge risk of throwing the baby out with the bath water. We need to fight climate change but we must not forget why we fight climate change!

Are we completely fucked because of climate change?

Yes, of course, we’re fucked. (Though it’s important to specify the “we” in this formulation, because the global poor, the disenfranchised, the young, and the yet-to-be-born are certifiably far more fucked than such affluent, white, middle-aged Americans as Vollmann and myself.)” (Wen Stephenson)
