Since the UN conference on it (in NYC?) this last week I've heard the networks use the CRISIS word a fair amount. Great word for this situation. It's by far mankind's greatest challenge we're facing now. Everything else pales... wars, famine, the nuclear threats, racism, epidemics, you name it. Those other things we can survive. We may not survive this one, it's got us by the tail. If we can't respond, things will get very tough, maybe so tough we'll perish.Yes, I wonder why they haven't latched on to "crisis" more. Maybe it sounds too much like "Crysis"?
And thus gives the impression of a "climate Crysis" being about global cooling or something?
