Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change (NYT magazine)

An interactive article with photographs, videos and text. This is a long article in two parts. It is extremely interesting with respect to how politics and science intermingle and how science can be ignored or not, and what factors were and are at play. The NYT requires a subscription for regular reading, but everybody has a free quota of four articles. In my opinion, every one of us, doing research on anything with broader implications cannot afford not to read this. On top of it is written almost like a thriller, so an easy read, and includes some interesting ideas of why the Montreal Protocol was easy for politicians and public to accept. https://nyti.ms/2mWMDT8 Our theme disables links on excerpts, please open the post and then follow the link.   Share this
