A lot of people working in climate science say one thing in public but a very different thing in private. In confidence, they are all much more scared about the future we face, but they won’t admit that in public. It is climate appeasement and it only makes things worse.

The crucial point is that there is now no chance of us avoiding a perilous, all-pervasive climate breakdown. We have passed the point of no return and can expect a future in which lethal heatwaves and temperatures in excess of 50C are common in the tropics; where summers at temperate latitudes will invariably be baking hot, and where our oceans are destined to become warm and acidic. A child born in 2020 will face a far more hostile world that its grandparents did. >>>
