Umair, time is not on our side. Predatory Capitalism is fast tracking an increase of 4, 6 or 8 degrees of warming. Positive feedback loops are anyone’s guess. The idea of a technofix is a pipedream. Civilization will die long before our species begins to fight for food, water and survival. If the elite survive, for a while, it will be in indoor bubbles or underground. Nothing will survive at 6 or 8 degrees of warming. And finally…we’re at 1 degree of warming now but don’t be naive…2 degrees is not twice as bad…it could be 20 or 200 times worse. I wish I saw a clear path forward to something better.
