ECOPHINY: a cure for climate change cognitive dissonance

Consider the picture below and how it communicates the human condition with respect to fossil fuels and climate change. Two sweethearts on a lake in a rowboat, with a small dog. “Oh, look, a lilly,” she says. He gazes dreamily at the porcelain skin on her cheek, ignoring the water-flower. Then…
