History suggests the less powerful will bear the brunt of the effects of the coming catastrophe and the very powerful will be able to avoid most of the problems. As coastal cities flood, the rich will simply move to higher ground. As drought raises food prices, the wealthy will simply spend more. As migration increases, they will move to “gated” communities. Etc., etc. Even if the people of the world manage to do something, it will come too late for many of our fellow human beings. Sorry for such a downer, but I am working hard to mitigate… Sarnat won the Poetry in the Arts First Place Award plus the Dorfman Prize, and has been nominated for a handful of recent Pushcarts plus Best of the Net Awards.
