I caught this GQ article online-- hey, I'm a voracious reader who doesn't discriminate-- while doing Sanctuary at the Miccosukee Embassy. Written by Drew Magary it's titled "Climate Vigilantism Is Your Future, Whether You Like It Or Not," Its subtitle is: If governments won't do anything, expect more and more people to take the environment into their own hands. So, you can see why I checked it out.
The article cites an Australian think tank report that says we only have about 30-years left before we're all part of the historical record left to be discovered by the next go-round of "intelligent" beings to evolve a billion years or so down the road (or space aliens). He states "There is neither the proper social incentive nor, more important, the financial incentive for leadership to act," something Busimanolotome Osceola had been saying from the beginning many moons ago.
Other governments, though they perhaps mean well, are not doing enough.
As a result of this great vacuum, the future will have more and more ecological vigilantes taking matters into their own hands. All of the ideas to save the world that sound fucking crazy will, in Bruckheimer movie style, be the only ideas left
to try. This isn’t some worst case scenario. This is what will be."
