Promises Kept

An Australian study famously predicted that human civilization could totally collapse due to climate change by the year 2050. No one knows the precise time when that could happen, but it’s a pretty good guess. Feels like whistling past the graveyard when major emitters of greenhouse gases are promising merely to become carbon neutral after the end of civilization.

    I followed COP26 barely at all because so little of the coverage was worth watching but also because, as the illustrated laughing square indicates, whatever’s going to be agreed on will be just that, an “agreement” that no one will be forced to do and not one that will actually do anything at the end of the day.
    I’m curious, did anyone point out that the simplest fix to climate change is to get the world population back under 2 billion?
