Since the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change (UNFCCC) negotiations produced the Paris Agreement1
of December 2015, despite its subsequent notorious political
challenges, the zeitgeist of global warming and subsequent
climate change (GWCC) concerns has moved on from debating
its very existence, toward understanding the way in which GWCC
is and will manifest now and in the future. Any dispute regarding
the attribution of global warming, and the consequences of
climate change, to industrial-era emissions of greenhouse gasses
emanating from anthropogenic origins, is now in the realm of
‘Flat-Earthers’. The more relevant questions are now about how
we rehabilitate the worldwide fossil fuel addiction (mitigation)
and how we respond to the impacts of GWCC (adaptation).
