“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Climate Change is Now

Two papers just published in Nature demonstrate categorically that climate change has already started. Of course yours truly has been arguing this for three years now. Now is after the “end of the world.”
