Our deeply human inability to take the future seriously

Good from Ezra Klein on whether climate change warrants eco-terrorism (no, because bad politics) and why it hasn’t already (we don’t believe in the future). Good afterward from Kevin Drum (humans have a history of destroying the environment they depend on. Only way out: massive investment to find new energy source.)

I fault Klein’s take a little for not taking on the idea of a climate John Brown. John Brown was bad politics, of course, but the issue was not to be solved politically.
