We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Climate scientists are now grading climate journalism
This is excellent news. See how scientists reviewed a recent Wall Street report entitled "An Overheated Climate Alarm" by reading the report first and then the scientists review of it in Climate Feedback. Still, the Wall Street's report will be read by many millions compared to a few hundred that will read the critical reviews by scientists in Climate Feedback.
