The striking contrast between the technological sophistication employed in the diagnosis of the problem and the lack of international collaboration or political sophistication when it comes to solving it illustrates the crisis of technological civilization.As a species we have shown enough cleverness to disrupt the world's climate, but may not have enough to remedy the heavy toll that we have taken on climate. things are of course made much worse by the presence in the White House of an aggressively ignorant and anti-science administration. Ignorance about the size of the threatened rise in the sea levels is no excuse for inaction, The possibility of this disaster must spur us into drastic action to curb global warming.


在诊断问题时采用的先进技术与解决问题时缺乏国际合作或政治先进程度之间的鲜明对比说明了技术文明的危机。作为一个物种,我们已经表现出足够的聪明来破坏世界气候,但是可能还不足以弥补我们对气候造成的巨大损失。当然,由于白宫里有一个激进的无知和反科学的政府,事情变得更加糟糕。对海平面上升威胁的程度一无所知并不是无所作为的借口,这场灾难的可能性必须促使我们采取严厉行动来遏制全球变暖。
