But in reality even that’s too late, and the President’s response, if any, will be grossly insufficient. The window of opportunity to do something about Climate Collapse has came and went.
Don't get me wrong, it would noble if Obama did do something and the rest of the countries on the planet capitulated but sadly the truth is Mankind has already committed a long slow suicide. The environmental bubble we've been riding is bursting over a relatively brief geologic time frame. My guess is that we will even continue to help it burst faster with Coal, Tar Sands, Nuclear energy, and the like.
Maybe the real question is why incur the chaos that would ensue from withdrawing from dirty energy when you know you’re going to die anyway. Live out the rest of our days in the comfort of our old routines and habits, without much change to acknowledge the inevitable. That is until it is visited upon us in the form of excessive heat, floods, droughts, and shortages. If that is to be the case then we will see chaos anyway.
Doesn’t look good.
