Default James Lovelock: Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change

"In his first in-depth interview since the theft of UEA emails, the
scientist blames inertia and democracy for lack of action"

"Lovelock, 90, believes the world's best hope is to invest in
adaptation measures, such as building sea defences around the cities
that are most vulnerable to sea-level rises. He thinks only a
catastrophic event would now persuade humanity to take the threat of
climate change seriously enough, such as the collapse of a giant
glacier in Antarctica, such as the Pine Island glacier, which would
immediately push up sea level."
