Climate Change? Ha ha, they said, most amusing.

 “A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that’s just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it’s a joke.”

Soren Kierkegaard, Either/Or pt. 1 

(Thanks to Jim Baldwin for the quote).
