Research Online what 3° of global warming means.
There are a number of useful websites that pop up quickly ranging from:
Niko Kommenda and Jonathan Watts
Or probe more deeply into the local and specific repercussions
of what 3° of warming will mean to us here in California.
The projections are quite serious.
But that is not the whole story, as Holly Buck noted in her perceptive and creative book, After
Geoengineering: Climate Tragedy, Repair and Restoration. The repairs and restoration that Holly
highlights in her book suggest another profoundly positive set of possibilities. The high capitalist,
colonialist, White supremacist views that have dominated the world’s legal and financial systems for
several generations, monetizing life itself, people, animals, and precious natural resources, have skewed
our most basic approaches to living. We stand now at the summit of the most extreme levels of social
inequality in the history of the planet. And the history of social injustice is deeply entwined with
environmental injustice – the sites of greatest environmental degradation tend to be at or near the sites of
greatest human degradation.
The climate emergency is a wake-up call for our civilization, a
message to human beings from the Earth: we are not living well.
We are living very badly, out of balance with morality, with nature, and with ourselves. The planet is
offering us an invitation to begin to live differently, in balance, with mindfulness, awareness, fairness,
compassion, and generosity. We are being invited to recognize the equality of all people and all things.
Perhaps the climate emergency carries deep and positive seeds
of renewal. And repair. And restoration.
