I SOOO agree with what James Lovelock has to say, it’s remarkable:
Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change
Read it! It’s true, and I’ve been thinking and saying this for a while (as like, HERE, if you think I’m boasting). I don’t often quote myself but I said it that (lengthy) post:

(‘Gezien de intelligentie en de kennis van de gemiddelde mens is het maar zeer de vraag
of een totale democratie de beste staatsvorm is.’)
