Thanks Luis, excellent article, -
- which I will attempt to distribute. As it is in a Chinese titled journal - wonder how many will see it.
A few editorial bloopers (which reverse the meaning of a couple of the sentences) - but I assume they can't be addressed. My main bother is that they really don't address the rapidly advancing impact of climate change - which is going to completely upset the population apple cart. So many of these well intentioned ideas will become moot.
But there is a terrific cognitive dissonance at work - 2 (female) climate scientists interviewed today on Radio National - still propose having children despite being aware of the implications of their work
