Losing the Earth

I am not fond of white letters on a black background but the prologue to this extraordinary article from the New York Times is printed that way. Give it a few paragraphs and the page becomes much more easy to read as the print reverses and becomes  black on white as you would expect. The words printed  defy all colors or shades: they are extraordinary.
It is decidedly worth reading as it explains, in short how it is that we are headed to environmental catastrophe in a way that did not actually have to happen. The newspaper comes in for criticism for running the article so in the end climate change becomes one more round of finger pointing. Had I children or grand children I'd be thinking really hard about this problem. As it is I expect I shall be dead before the worst comes to pass.
