Big Brain. Big Heart?

Big Brain. Big Heart? – Bill McKibben | Sojourners Magazine – August 2012.

This is a very good article about the warnings from scientists concerned with the climate change, and the surprising lack of reaction among religious leaders and the press. I think that the reason for the silence must be that the leaders/news editors either haven’t understood how serious the problem is, or they are just lacking the courage to deal with it. The whole thing is just so big, and the idea that we have to change our way of living to deal with it, is so frightening that most people prefer to pretend that there is no problem there. And for the same sad reasons a few skeptics get a lot more attention in the media than they deserve.

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems. I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other. I trust the reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for 20 years.
