Global response to Covid-19 is rapid. Response to climate change is too damn slow

Climate Policy Times 15th March 2020
The deadly threat posed by the rapid spread of Covid-19 has resulted in
unprecedented action from governments around the world. There’s a lesson
here for climate change: it’s too damn slow. What would happen, for
example, if we learnt that the polar icecaps had reduced by almost half
overnight, rather than since the 1980s? What if some of the world’s
largest lakes mysteriously dried up over January, not over the past decade?
What sort of panic would ensue if a quarter of the world’s population
found their homes under water tomorrow, instead of being told it would
happen in 80 years?
