So the choice is either going back to live under the conditions from before the industrial revolution (that’s late Mide-ages mind you) or we all commit suicide). Let’s get real – the mere idea to have 8 billion persons living on this planet with 16th-century technology is ludicrous. And I am not even getting started on our living standards that will be abysmal. All the so-called clean technologies, wind, solar and EV’s let alone the fancier stuff just falls apart without massive subsidies. Take subsidies away and EV sales plummet to near zero, no new windmill or solar array are installed anymore. That’s the data, wherever subsidies, were cut they whitered faster than a rose in the fire of a blowtorch. So, are those activists living the mid-ages life? I see them wearing modern clothing, totting smartphones, wearing glasses and I bet those with medical conditions use modern medicine in order to keep them in check. Good luck with all that without fossil fuels. Oh, they still use all this – well then allow me to call them damn bigots.
Climate breakdown could be rapid and unpredictable. We can no longer tinker around the edges and hope minor changes will avert collapse
