"Scientists like Dr. Cobb have, for years, urged world leaders to bend
the curve of planet-warming emissions. Instead, emissions have raced
upward. Now the consequences are being felt: a three-month-long flood in
the Florida Keys, wildfires across a record hot and dry Australia,
deadly heat waves in Europe.
Gernot Wagner, a climate economist at New York University, called the
virus “climate change on warp speed.”
Why have we not taken climate risks to heart? Politics and psychology
play a role."
