Clive Hamilton in his “Requiem for a Species: Why We Resist the Truth About Climate Change”

Taken from Chris Hedges:  “The myth of Progress”

“To emotionally accept impending disaster, to attain the gut-level understanding that the power elite will not respond rationally to the devastation of the ecosystem, is as difficult to accept as our own mortality. The most daunting existential struggle of our time is to ingest this awful truth—intellectually and emotionally—and continue to resist the forces that are destroying us.”
