For my inspiration I turn to the woods on my small farm. When a tree falls over, a diverse myriad of entrepreneurial organisms take advantage of the additional light, water, nutrients and organic matter. Forests and other ecosystems are resilient, so they can absorb shocks and adapt to change. Although there is healthy competition, the competition is healthy — and many of the best competitors know how to engage in win-wins. It’s fascinating to see that while the actions are those of individual organisms, the totality of the system has evolved in a manner is resilient, resource efficient, and perpetually restorative of the whole. We have much to learn. Not merely technology but in the organizational attributes that make ecosystems (those spared human onslaught)so robust and enduring. I believe science will bear this out as well. Thanks for the great piece.

Science has always trumped denial in the long run (eg. cigarettes, ozone depletion, acid rain, etc.)

The problem I see is that it may be too late when considering climate change. When our policymakers finally admit that there is a huge crisis and subsequently put a real price on carbon while promoting renewables, will it already be too late? We are on target for 4C warming by 2100 assuming countries actually follow their proposed emission standards. 4C is catastrophic and yet scientists keep doing their science and speaking “clinically” about climate change while politicans keep “greenwashing” the topic. We need more Dr. James Hansons – the Paul Revere of climate change.

It won’t be too long before the “heat in the pipeline” causes an unstoppable sea level rise. All the legislation in the world cannot stop the sea once the ice melt passes the tipping point.
