As a civilization, we’d known about our impact on climate since the 1950-60s. We’ve also continued to fail to agree on anything that would have prevented its negative impact… since the 1970s.
50 years later, the IPCC reports, again, that nothing’s changed. We will not limit anything. Too global, too second-order-effect-y, too greedy for a human brain evolved for the micro-tribal life amid the African Great Lakes.
And the “individual carbon footprint responsibility” message of British Petroleum… How’s that cycling to work — 15 years in my case — or building a passive house, or [insert Green Tech™ here] of yours have changed the GtCO₂ graph?
Any realistic plans for your future, seriously?
