"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

Nice Argument for Mitigation

Sheril Kirshenbaum at the Intersection has spotted an excellent, accessible and remarkably entertaining YouTube presentation arguing for vigorous mitigation.
