The Advent Of Timely Responsibility

To postpone any goals of advancement now would be to forfeit our very survival, as referencing these and other respected articles will tell you. We cannot afford to allow petty politics to foreclose on our potentially bright future. The need for democratic concensus is non-existent -- there is already a concensus which can only bring us to one resolution: that we must steel ourselves against the effects of our changing climate and divert from our current industrial course. Denial is futile. Deliberation is futile. In the words of Bismarck, "the great questions of our day are decided not by speeches and majority votes, but by blood and iron". There can be no room for error at this juncture. We can neither split hairs nor agree to disagree. We must not be wholly reactionary -- waiting until it is too late is not an option. Sound concern for our very survival - let alone our prosperity - is the pretext for our preventive action.

The Revolution begins; the Madness ends.

"we must steel ourselves against the effects of our changing climate and divert from our current industrial course."

So we should, what, go back to living in caves? No thank you.
