Nihilism and responsibility

Paraphrasing

nihilism is what it takes to turn an ordinary person into a monster

and

responsibility is what it takes to turn an ordinary person into a hero

This is why we shouldn’t fall victim to the the-end-is-nigh scaremongering of climate panic*, or whatever scaremongering will follow in the years to come.

*) I may need to add the usual disclaimer: Climate change is real, most of it is currently caused by human activity, we need to control it but there is no sane way we can stop it at +1.5℃ or even +2℃. I think we’ll end up at +3.5℃, which is bad enough – not catastrophic though – before we can get it back down.
