Until recently, climate change was considered just a figment of some peoples imagination by the worlds establishments. Some have even demeaned the clear scientific evidence to call it a new religion. Both, as the evidence now shows, have been negligent and wrong respectively.
Simultaneously, until only recently, the message of scientists in the Western world was initially stifled by the politicians, often at the request of the hydrocarbon lobby. Even now, when changes have accelerated to the point where they are undeniable, the recognition of the magnitude of the problem and the commitment to solve them still falls very short of what is urgently needed.
