Item 6 from RainbowWarriorsInternational in Issue 25 referred to a recent
paper by Clive Hamilton
http://www.clivehamilton.net.au/cms/index.php?page=articles, which contains
a scholarly review of how climate change denial follows a long history of
similar examples of how people always resist the (inconvenient) truth. It
should be read by all concerned with the subject.
Gert van Gast (item 3) concluded yesterday: "So, let's just keep going. No
giving up, no complete changes of what we are doing. All efforts to truth,
convenient or not!" Ways forward do exist. As I suggested in my message (the
list at the end of item 4), there are other ways than keeping battering a
weary public with the magnitude of the climate change issue.
