Serious climate proposals sound very unserious to many ears.

That will change quickly, but lag in political discourse is palpable right now. The gap between Seriousity and true Seriousness is wide.

Amen.

Just as outright climate denial is spread by dressing it up in science-like truthiness, climate delay is cloaked in the language of moderation and sober seriousity. But there is no moderate solution any more to climate change. The only serious proposals are rapid and disruptive.

I wouldn’t insure the planet right now either.

I've been thinking about the notion of "feasibility" in the context of climate solutions. Declaring approaches "infeasible" is often the first card played; but when is it a bluff?

Here is a short post drawing out how the IPCC 1.5deg report breaks it down: dropeverything.blog/knowledge/

I often see arguments of the form:
"We don't need to make X faster/lower friction because people hardly ever X."
Yeah, but what if you made X faster? Don't you think that might influence how often people do X? People might even find new use cases for X you haven't even thought of

What color is the main component of this shirt?

"Consumers are forever being bombarded with claims that our individual buying choices can put a meaningful dent in some big problem. Food waste is one of the few areas where that’s true. But we won’t make much of a difference by acquiring a taste for hideous, gnarly cucumbers."

otoh, "four times as much food is wasted at the fork — that is, at homes and consumer-facing businesses — than at the farm or packinghouse. We throw out so much food at home that 'saving' ugly produce from food service or processing could actually cause more waste."

"For the most part, ugly-produce initiatives are simply gentrifying second-grade produce that was already being eaten — just not, perhaps, by upscale shoppers."

I.e., these might be fine businesses, but they're not having a big effect on waste itself.
