I’m glad to give hope as there is little of that around these days. Breaking people out of archaic modes of thought is about a difficult as anything we can imagine. There are many people who have responded with excitement to things that i have written on this so we are not alone by any means. In fact I dare say we are more than a plurality at this point. It is all hidden in silence because the defining noise of the ignorant and frightened drown out what is actually being thought before it can be said.

We need to change that. We are, as you say, all in this together and now we have to act on that reality. But, as many people ask, how do we get from here to there? We have a noisy and reactionary minority suckng up all of our bandwidth in this country and few others. They need to put in perspective and kept there. They are not the future.

The deadly part of this is that they have eliminated the future replacing it with an endless repetition of their own fears and hatreds. We need to go around these people and then begin to deal with the climate crisis before it overwhelms us.
