Nature article: Be persuasive. Be brave. Be arrested (if necessary)

This viewpoint article by financier Jeremy Grantham in  Nature seems pertinent to this blog. In argues that scientists should be more outspoken about the dangers of climate change:

It is crucial that scientists take more career risks and sound a more realistic, more desperate, note on the global-warming problem. Younger scientists are obsessed by thoughts of tenure, so it is probably up to older, senior and retired scientists to do the heavy lifting. Be arrested if necessary. This is not only the crisis of your lives — it is also the crisis of our species’ existence. I implore you to be brave.

There is also some concerning stuff about fertiliser depletion.
