With the climate crisis unfolding and accelerating around the world, is anyone else finding it much harder to focus at work? I am really starting to worry, the impacts are becoming very real.

I think humans overvalue how important they are. The climate will change, we will adapt.

My argument was that humans already suffer and there are much larger pereptrators than climate change. Never claimed all people will be fine with climate change but holistically the species will survive. But feel free to go to your bunker while I enjoy my waterfront property.

I’ve realized that I have zero interest in my current role and am trying to pivot to doing something humanitarian and with social impact. I think a lot of people feel this way.

You might be right, but do you really think climate change is exaggerated?

SA1, I think it's important to consider what you mean by worst case. I don't forsee a giant fire tornado wiping out the continental USA, but I think rising sea levels and increased temperatures will absolutely affect ecosystems and kill/harm people who don't have the means to adapt, and this will again be more deadly overall than scary things that keep people up at night. I'm sure you can read various scenarios in the link someone posted, it's absolutely not my field of expertise. D1, as a phd scientist myself I would never make claims about my field as strong as those that alarmists have made over the years. I can absolutely dismiss their claims about events that were supposedly set to occur years ago and did not. It lessens people's trust in scientists when people make such statements. Furthermore, most of the time it is not scientists making those claims, it's politicians and media figures, scientists typically know better.

Not a terrible idea D1

We either die before it happens, or die because it does. Either way, the end result is the same, dead. Why worry about something you as an individual can’t really control or impact unless you have vast wealth or impact

Best consulting companies for Healthcare related projects ?

I'm a tech consultant with 1 YOE. Im wondering if I should trade my current job: 80k TC, fully remote, ~45 hrs/week, fantastic company and team, and really fun projects, for a new opportunity: 125k TC, 100% in person, ~60 hrs/week, unknown team and company dynamics? Im leaning toward staying, because I really do love where I am, but thats life changing money! Any advice is appreciated!

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
