Should climate scientists frankly tell the public just how dire the situation is? On this question, there are differences of opinion within the climate community.
This century is still far away from being a Whiteheadian century. But it’s going in the right direction.
One of the strengths of Whiteheadian-Hartshornean process thought is that it leads people to care deeply about the long-term good of the world, regardless of whether they will be part of it.
Number 1 of the rewrite is, “Thou Shalt Not Ruin Civilization’s Climate.”
The vision we as Whiteheadians want to promote is of the world as “a communion of subjects rather than a collection of objects.” The phrase comes from Thomas Berry, who gained his vision from Teilhard de Chardin.
