While I agree with the thrust of the article - indeed, it is fairly obvious and uncontroversial stuff - I do wish people would stop writing things like
"What options are available to them going forwards?"
Probably more and better options than would be available were they to go, say, backwards, sideways or downwards. Conceivably this ludicrous piece of vacuous pomposity means "in future", but if so why not say so? And in any case the options for changing the past are dim, while the present is impossibly elusive. "Let's do it NOW! Oh wait, we can't because now has become then..."
If we are to talk usefully about technical problems, one of the first prerequisites is to use plain English, as simple and direct as possible.
