I suspect the whole [green panic] thing has over-reached itself, overshot. It seems to me it's now in the sphere of people looking round for the sensible solutions - the whole world of Adaptation being top of the list. A lot of greenies really hate this, because it suggests nothing can be done to stop It; so nothing needs to be done to stop It - just build higher sea walls, use more sunblock, and invest in better water industry infrastructure. But anti-growth? - nah, mate. Growth is where the money comes from, innit?Well now, see this: the Global Commission on Adaptation.
Whatever one's views on this bunch of global-establishment troughers and NGO-wallahs, there's no getting away from it - this is Mainstream with a capital 'M'. And their mission is Adaptation - not net-zero carbon by tomorrow afternoon. Tough tittie, Swampy. Mind out of the way, Greta. We ain't gonna be living in caves.
(Of course, they're all out to steal our pension funds. But - who isn't?)
