No vaccine for the ignorant

Whatever difficulties lie ahead in decarbonising the economy, with a bit of effort and brain power we could manage it.
The IPCC report, written by 234 of the world’s leading scientists in the field, from 60 countries, after evaluating 14,000 scientific papers and 73,000 review comments, and signed off by 195 governments, makes it clear we are running out of time to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
But, as the late Nobel physicist Max Planck said, science advances one funeral at a time. So the young might just have to wait a while. Even now we have no vaccine for invincible ignorance.
