Prophets and Profits
I never thought I'd be playing the prophet.
But that's what it felt like at the last candidate forum. I was up on stage, talking about the latest grim forecast from that international panel of scientists, warning that we've passed numerous key irreversible tipping points, that we are locked in to a hotter future.
