“That time has come and gone.”

Lonnie Thompson, PhD,Byrd Polar Center, Ohio State University:

“When I first started working on this and seeing the system change, I think it was 1992 when I first testified at U.S. Senate on climate change. Back then I talked about prevention. So, that time has come and gone. I think now it’s the mitigation, the adaptation, or the suffering.”
