Oh, I am going to start advise undergrads on career choices soon. Many of them will want to go to graduate schools. So I would like to give them some cautions. Please let me know when your article comes out. Good luck with publishing it!

I would recommend two books on climate change -- Our Final Warning: Six Degrees of Climate Emergency and The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells.

Imaging that the world will unite and take action when things start to really get bad is a bit wishful thinking. Just look what is happening in this pandemic.
