1. Things are desperately bad already...and that's BEFORE the effects baked in already emerge fully...

We as a species are doomed. Anything larger than a house cat is likely to be dead by 2100 or 2150 at the latest.

Temperatures are only one small part of the problem. The dominos that fall after thresholds for feedback loops are crossed are the REAL issue.

Soil erosion and desertification are terms people should be terrified of instead of "ISIS" or "Radical Islamic Terrorism". The REAL threat to civilization is not screaming "Allahu Akbar!", they are wearing Armani suits and jet setting the globe in places like Davos, and New Zealand and private islands around the world.

I had hoped to be dead before the true horror of what we have wrought on this Earth became apparent...and unless I shuffle off this mortal coil soon, I will not be spared the witness of it all. Things are bad already, another recession is imminent and society is unprepared for the aftermath. Our species, capable of so much, is in the end to be felled by a lack of imagination and a paradigm of destruction instead of creation.

I am irreligious - I have no use for any of them, at all - but the sad thing is better adherence to the precepts of human faith systems instead of lustful, slavish devotion to capitalism would have possibly saved us all. In the end, to the billionaires and titans of industry, I wish I could be there to watch you idiots try to eat gold, drink silver and breathe platinum...but suffice it to say this...no one, no one at all is immune from fundamental truths such as the need for food, shelter, water and community.

It didn'y have to be this way, but humanity in total is simply too stupid and too maleable to the will of evil men to survive.
