OurTake: Our Last Chance Just Went — Glasgow Will be a Fiasco

For years the climate crisis was “long”. Now it’s here. For months the Glasgow Climate Summit has been a looming disaster. Today, after Democrats admit they’ll have to cut deeply into Biden’s omnibus Build Back Better reconciliation bill, and China announced it wouldn’t be ending coal-fired plants anytime soon, the Glasgow summit’s outcome has been predetermined. It will be a huge disappointment for all climate activists, and it will presage the decline of Western and Eastern civilizations. It may even preordain the end of the human experiment. Glasgow was our last, best hope to avoid a dire fate. Now we know we’ve blown it. We have nobody to blame but ourselves.
