This article is difficult to read, not for the writing which is clear and compelling, and holds an unflinching mirror up to our darker side. It is difficult to read for revealing how far we have to go and how emboldened are the forces that would drag us back. I fear for the difficult times ahead as we face monumental environmental challenges with deeply divided agendas and an easy recourse to hate and blame.
