  •  We won't go extinct (4+ / 0-)

    We're generalists and as such as a species, we will adapt to whatever comes. However, from what I've read (The Great Disruption by Paul Gilding, etc.) best case senario if we as a species get mobilized in the next year or so and do what must be done, only a billion or so people will perish. Worst case is that only a couple hundred million people survive. That means that 97% of humans perish taking us back to population levels seen about the time of the Roman empire.  

    I know which side I am on: the one that does the math.
