Survival will be a human choice not magic

Dear Editor:

Johnny Overton strikes again. (“Our delusional leadership strikes again”, 30 March). He concludes only a Messiah can save humans from their own exploitative mind-set which is destroying the planet.    

But there is nothing preventing humans from mending their own ways. While giving Overton credit for reasonable observations of this mind-set it must be noted that the cultural / political space we have put ourselves in is one of denial.

Denial could give way to action creating a new sustainable way of life if certain, probably unpredictable, events occur. Their unpredictability might leave it difficult to understand and might seem like magic but it would have been a human process.
