Turning a blind eye to climate change

I sometimes wonder how future generations will view the current crop of leaders. Faced with facts about the dangers of climate change, so many of them have chosen to turn a blind eye.

The American administration chose to back out from a global agreement to keep temperature levels in check – despite being the worst offender. The leader of Brazil is accelerating the pace of deforestation of the Amazon rain forests – the world’s largest source of fresh oxygen.

In the long run, are these actions any worse than crimes committed against human beings?

How will we look back at these times three generations from now?

When will we wake up to what is actually happening?
