Climate change is going to be an unmitigated disaster. It already is, in fact. But for all the talk of solar panels from 3-D printers this, and Paris that, we miss the big picture. The big picture is that we are screwed, more and more people know that we are screwed, and that it won’t be long (2 years? 5 years?) before a bunch of reputable scientists sigh and say “We’ve been warning you mo-fos for Thirty Fricking Years. Well, it’s too late now.”
THAT will be interesting. Not “fun to watch,” but interesting. As the pennies drop, as the illusions shatter, there will be pleas for god to intervene, for geo-engineers to intervene. For all sorts of stuff. Here’s a flow chart I put together almost ten years ago. Anyone want to argue the toss with me?
