No I’m not catastrophising.

The world is slowly lurching towards a fully fascist led America, India, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Argentina.

Instead people are either ignorant or blaming “wokeism”* for their problems.

I have no clue what to do and this is literally a car crash in slow motion.

I’m despondent because I’m going to be crushed under the boot when the time comes and my morals get in the way of my survival instinct.

Humans are repeating the mistakes of the past. It’s just so anxiety inducing.

*Woke is a useless term promulgated by fascists to dog whistle the things they really want to hate - feminism, socialism, LGBTQIA+, immigration, brown/black people, equality and diversity.

    Your take on climate change makes me more worried. Sure, I will probably be fine, but how many innocent people around the world will die until we’ve done enough to see the climate improving?

    How horrible is the world going to be to inhabit if the Gulf Stream collapses? Or other major climate disruptions occur?

    I don’t doubt the human race will survive, but why do we have to experience the pain before committing to fixing the problem?

      For your last comment, I think it’s because pain is one of the only things that motivates us

        While I’d like to think the wealthiest would do something that would benefit everyone, they can just build walls, or move to higher ground.

      The poor tropics are especially screwed. Also all the cities on the coast

      And there’s optimism in climate change, zeroing our carbon burn is straight forward. It wouldn’t take a decade if we could agree on the sane path

      But we have pushed so much CO2 into the air, and so much heat into the sea we need to do better than zero. I’m pretty pessimistic
