Maybe we should just embrace the inevitable and start referring to this future event as "The Cleansing" (that sound rather appealing)!\nBut dammit, I have a kid who I dearly love and see much good in humanity, so let me hold onto my optimism no matter how the reality looks!\nI know. I have a brother who is a top climate scientist and published author on the topic who is very optimistic. I keep telling him that driving a Prius isn't going to make a dent. We need serious population control to conserve resources and reduce pollution. Nobody talks about that because it's too controversial. Be fruitful and multiply ;)\n\nWe really need a geo-engineered solution to dissolve the CO2 in the atmosphere, but again most environmentalists are against ANY climate manipulation beyond what we are already doing with our CO2 emissions.
