 One of the themes on DailySpec is the triumph of the optimist and human adaptability and ingenuity.
I found this article on social media: "The Uninhabitable Earth: Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than you think."

I post this, not to debate climate science and what may or may not happen in the future. Rather I was struck by the overall tone, defeatism, and agenda pushing (rightly or wrongly) that talked about all things wrong with the world and none of the things that are right. That there was allowance that there may be a way to solve any of these possibilities.

Fortunately I read very few of these things or else I would likely be mired in perpetual depression. But it is probably healthy to be exposed occasionally to this as a reminder that defeatists are all around us.

(There is probably a joke about defeatists, realists, and optimists in here too)
