Climate change can’t get any crazier, but a little-noticed remark in an Inter Press Service article borders on fantasy. First let me give you some context. The U.N.-affiliated Indigenous Peoples' Global Summit on Climate Change was held in Anchorage this week. Stephen Leahy wrote the article ‘Native peoples sound dire warning.’ I didn’t think you could get more dire than Al Gore; how wrong I was.
Leahy begins his article by blending science, fiction and poetry: “Humanity's hot carbon breath is not just melting the planet’s polar regions, it is disrupting natural systems and livelihoods around the world.” I always like to say anybody can be a writer these days.
