I fear that the human race is a failed experiment. I hope I’m wrong. Too many people still don’t understand the seriousness of climate change. This virus has been bad, but we will get it under control. The effects of climate change are not going to be controlled by public health measures or a vaccine. Large areas which are now inhabitable will become too hot. The people who live in those places will try to move, and they will not be welcomed. Large parts of the coastlines will be underwater, and again, the people who live there will try to move. Storms will be more destructive. It will be harder to grow crops. Governments will not be able to deal with the problem, and some will became more authoritarian. It’s not a pretty picture, but I don’t see where I’ve gone wrong. Please, someone convince me that I’m exaggerating the problem.
