Ultimately, a journalist is responsible for the ideas that end up in their reader’s head. There are two parts to this: ensuring that the data and the story clearly and accurately represents the reality, and ensuring that this accurate representation is what the reader actually comes away with.

This is the sort of paragraph that reminds me of why I got into the mean-spirited essay business to begin with.

A former Afghan special forces commander who was at the command and control center in Kunduz during the fight assured me I would never get to the bottom of the attack. The reason why I couldn’t figure out exactly what had happened, he said, was the fog of war. “Ground truth is impossible to know. Even those who were there wouldn’t be able to tell you what they saw.” Not the MSF internal investigation, not the joint Afghan-NATO inquiry, not the Saleh commission, and certainly not the 5,000-page military investigation by U.S. Central Command would tell us what happened that night, he assured me. “Have you ever been in a fire fight? It passes like a dream.” The final sentence of the Saleh report echoed his sentiment. “Facts are never solid and we cannot feel them and they will remain this way.”

Wir Schweizer sind gute Umweltverwalter, sehen uns gern als Vorbilder und sind manchmal ganz gern auch Umweltträumer, und wo Umweltschutz kostet, haben wir das Geld dafür. Sobald es aber um Verhaltensweisen oder gar um Machtstrukturen geht, lassen wir lieber alles beim Alten.

Für die anstehenden großen Umweltprobleme vom Kulturlandverlust über das Artensterben bis zum Klimawandel wird das nicht genügen.

It needs to be considered, however, that pathways with higher peak emission rates entail larger peak warming, which increases the likelihood of crossing thresholds for ‘dangerous’ climate change.
