From Boris with Love

Between the end of March and the first days of April, all homes in the United Kingdom received a letter sent directly by the British government and signed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, in which they were emphatically invited to STAY HOME.
Yet only on a few days earlier on 12th March, Johnson himself, in a press conference, did not pay importance to all the alarm bells coming from various European states. Donald Trump on 2nd March declared that the Covid-19 pandemic was a hype, and that the risk for the American people was low, even going so far as to criticize the data provided by the World Health Organization. Yet 48 hours later, as data on Covid-19 infections began to skyrocket, a state of emergency was declared in the US.
Now imagine for one moment if we replaced the words “pandemic caused by Covid-19” with “danger from climate change”, we would have extremely concrete evidence of how the behaviour of the negationists can be extremely harmful, with the aggravating circumstance that the pandemic from Covid19 can be stopped as soon as a vaccine is found and in a substantially short period of time when compared to historical cycles. As for danger posed by climate change, by the time a national emergency is declared – or when the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom sends you a letter to the citizens – it will be too late.
