  2. It is not Adaptation versus Mitigation that is very misleading and not understanding what adaptation means now at all.

    Adaptation includes all mitigation efforts otherwise adaptation isn't going to be possible and we're into the survival!

    I would suggest people read about adaptation and how adaptatioon and mitigation go hand in hand.

    Also watch Eileen Shea talk at the Waether and Climate summit earlier this year to get a deeper understanding of Adpatation (which again includes all mitigation efforts and carbon sequestration on a massive scale!).

  3. Agreed, ranyl. I found the ABC article depressing. That seems to be the narrative these days, "it's too late to stop warming, so we just have to figure out how to live with it." We've gone directly from denial to nihilism. How do we convince the public that admitting there is a problem doesn't mean giving up to it? We can't undo global warming, but we can keep it from being the worst case, while we also adapt to the inevitable consequences.
