OK, all you in there with Rall. What are your recommendations for what should be done? If your evaluation of the climate dangers facing H. sapiens are accurate, then there is no hope for a future of this species, and we will (and are already) taking down a number of other species with us. I’m pushing 80, so I won’t be seeing much more of this extinction event. I’d like to be able to think that my grandkids, just starting college now, have a future, but I am beginning to despair. The species got to the level it has now because of its ability to form cooperative social units. Can a global social unit be formed in time to rescue H. sapiens or will we be in the dust bin of evolutionary history after a short but significant blaze of success that precipitated the 6th extinction event on earth.
