Seems that Humans are hardwired to need an EOTW scenario, especially as groups.
All religions have one - and in a secular age makes sense(?!) that an EOTW scenario evolves around stuff that people will now accept.
For me the Groupthink "burn the heretic" angle of Global Warming / Climate Change simply screams that a lot of folks have vested interests in the story, different ones for different folks - from control, to making money
, to taxes
, to hugging trees, to filling a void left by god(s) going bye bye.....
.....and BTW I am not saying that no good will come of it!, might be a driver to make some changes in the world for the better of all of us from more efficient use of resources - but am not holding my breath
If the threat was so real we would be rapidly depopulating the earth - by fair means and foul.........
