TheVoiceOfJoyce Climate Blogger for The Guardian discusses activist hopes for our collective future.

Collectively , citizens of planet earth, must adapt to the new Climate reality. We may exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius. We have 7 times more fossil fuels then needed to maintain 1.5 degrees Celsius.

I noticed, over the years, we follow simple patterns. In construction, there are lean years. Developers overbuild and then we have more capacity then needed. Commercial properties remained vacant for years. We called them , see through buildings. There were no tenants.

The same thing is happening with the Fossil Fuel industry. We have an overcapacity, yet governments are fearful, there’s not enough. Can we learn to let go of our need for Fossil Fuel security. Wind down our subsidies to this industry and integrate renewable energy, as if our lives depended on our decision? They do!

Many industry go extinct with new innovations. Fossil Fuels have to become extinct, though there’s an abundance of supply, so we can live!
