Even in the near term it is already too late, however, to avert significant disasters, and that is a difficult message to convey without inducing paralysis or denial even among those willing to listen.

It is a great deal easier for all of us to hit the snooze button on the alarm clock, go back to sleep, and hope that it all goes away, or to pretend that dire circumstances present only opportunities.

Climate change presents opportunities for some, certainly, but for the Tuvalu islanders, the victims of floods and droughts and of larger hurricanes and typhoons, those living in low-lying areas like Bangladesh, and the 150,000 who die each year in climate change driven weather events, the word “opportunity” has a peculiarly hollow sound.

It will as well for the 250,000,000 or more climate refugees that the United Nations estimates will be homeless by mid-century.
