There are many places where the death of elderly and ill people due to the lack of AC is a recurring event. We are fast approaching the point where some places on the planet will be uninhabitable at all without AC. It is going to become even more of a matter of life or death than it is already.

Yes. ALL of them are bad. The moment they swear to uphold and protect a racist, immoral and unjust system, to enforce laws that are designed to imprison people of color disproportionately, and decide to turn a blind eye to crimes by their fellow officers and the systemic crimes of the plutocracy, they become bad people by default. #FTP... every last one of them. #ACAB

Is there a TLDR anywhere? I thought the world was going to end before I got 1/3 of the way through.

I personally chose to take the long view. Earth has rebooted its ecosphere many times, and will do so again. We brought the reboot on ourselves this time, through greed, selfishness and deliberate, willful ignorance. History is full of failed species, but not many took most of the other ones with it.

Even the world-wide slowing of pollution we see today might not be enough to stop the reboot, the greenhouse gas pumped into the atmosphere 30 years ago is driving the change we see today. There is a long lag, and methane deposits are exploding in the Arctic already.

Learn the life skills you will need, use online resources, take it step by step. Each thing you learn will help build your confidence.

There are organizations that can give guidance and support, find one that fits your needs. Canada just announced an increase of millions in funding for a help line for young people (https://kidshelpphone.ca/ 1-800-668-6868) , because they recognize what a stressful time this is for youth. I don't know where you live but they may have suggestions for someone in your area. No one should have to endure abuse to live.

Good luck!

My sincere hope is that all the people outraged over toilet paper and food hoarders right now wake up to the fact that the rich are hoarding EVERYTHING, EVERY DAY, and take appropriate action.
