If, as Mahima Sukhdev writes, we are “bad at making decisions that will be good for us in the long run” we would not create civilization she enjoys. The internet, computers, electricity and so one have been developed by people who barely could use them. Ms. Sukhdev can write that we are bad in making decisions that are good for our future because others before her, already proved her wrong by providing for the technology she uses.
She is wrong as well that we do not care about climate change and what to do about it. In particular, we have to check the possibility that spending trillions of dollars on a bet that we can stop climate change can bankrupt us, making much more damage than the climate change itself ever could do.
