Just call a pig a pig. It’s global warming. We aren’t going to stop it. We can only adapt or die off. The sooner we stop kidding ourselves with bullshit academic niceties, the sooner we can get to work on the next version of civilization without unfettered rapacity. People who have stuff already will never give up that stuff willingly (especially cheap stuff).
The human horde hoards. It’s what we do, until we can’t. Government follows demand, and the demand is for cheez, phones and Spectacle.
