Decades ago, climate scientists warned that the continued release of CO2 would have catastrophic consequences for the planet, and since then, little or nothing has been done.

Christopher Anderson is the author of “What Happened to the Love Generation? How the Boomers Blew It,” and the novels “Alki”, “The Revolutionists”, and “Love and Infatuation: Three Novellas.”
