Read this Article, Heed this Message

ClimateYou customarily cites articles that inform our readers about some aspect of climate change. We summarize, comment on, or critique them, and we always provide a link to the source article for those readers  who want to learn more. We are diverging from that practice today to post an entire article  by Damian Carrington, the Environment Editor of The Guardian. We feel that it is of such import that it  deserves to be read in its entirety by all our readers. It starkly says that humanity’s same  abuse of nature that is causing the once benign climate to become malign also is the root cause of pandemics. It warns that if humanity doesn’t fundamentally alter its relationship with nature, more and more deadly pandemics are inevitable. Our fate is in our own hands. ClimateYou commends Mr. Carrinton’s Guardian article to you. We should all heed its message and mend our ways.

George Ropes, Senior Editor
