Thank you, Yvonne Abraham, for recognizing the dilemma of the climate activist (“Keeping the faith,” Metro, June 9) . Social collapse? End of civilization by 2050? Or my favorite new acronym, INTHE (Inevitable Near-Term Human Extinction)? Why keep fighting — how about eat, drink, and be merry?

It’s either going to be bad, or it’s going to be worse. I’m fighting for bad. We all need to.
