No really. Right in the middle of “T. H. Huxley, Darwin’s bulldog, about to be Cancelled,” — with the question hanging: Can Darwinism really survive Cancel Culture when all Darwin’s messengers are Unpersons? — Reuters sees fit to run with this:
Edward O. Wilson, a 92-year old naturalist hailed as the Darwin of the 21st century, said humankind is not too polarized to save the planet, even as some of the world’s biggest polluters drag their feet on cutting carbon emissions and arresting global warming.
He sees preventing catastrophic climate change — the aim of U.N. climate talks starting in Scotland on Sunday — and saving biodiversity, or the variety of plant and animal species in the world, as two initiatives that must happen together.Tim McLaughlin and Kanupriya Kapoor, “Harvard’s modern-day Darwin warns against humanity’s downward slope” at Reuters
