All the papers in the world on climate will not change the current power structure and changing that power structure has nothing to do with taxing and severely impacting regular citizens.
The folks, who are the most alarming in tone, have extremely unreliable climate model forecasts that have proven inaccurate many times over.
It doesn't help that the hysterical, fueled by media, voices give credence to a mentally challenged child of extreme privilege
over actual climate scientists who disagree with her views.
I see far too much hysteria involved in discussing this issue over listening to opposing view points about it and there are absolutely opposing views from very well accredited climate scientists.
What if the 'mentally challenged child' happens to be right? (which is a very rude way to talk about Asperger's, just wow) She might well be right, you don't know that. No climate scientist can be sure about the models. She has every right to be angry that adults are leaving her with an endangered world.
FYI, Asperger's does not necessarily lower IQ, in fact many Asperger's have extremely high IQ, sometimes even genius level at least in certain specific talents. "Savant skills are very prominent in many Asperger's persons, certainly as high as in 10% of them."
What is the current power structure and how can we change it?
Maybe you are talking about the millionaires and billionaires getting rich off of fossil fuels like the Koch brothers (RIP one of them) who do everything they can to stop any talk about climate change?
Is it alarmist to believe most of the climate scientists? It is not a minority opinion. Just because what they are saying is alarming doesn't mean they are alarmists. They aren't alarmists if they turn out to be right.
Perhaps IF the climate scientists are right and human life is threatened in a few decades, you will be in Heaven looking down at your grandchildren, great-grandchildren, or great-great-grandchildren who are in danger of starvation and are watching millions of people dying, you might think 'Gee, maybe our generation shouldn't have listened to Jordan Peterson'.
