  •  No scenario I know of calls for every spot (4+ / 0-)

    on the planet to suddenly become uninhabitable, even if we have a polar shift. We've proven fairly hard to kill as a species, even when a huge chunk of a particular society is extirpated. I'm still betting on the big smart monkey in the evolutionary short term.

    YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.

    •  On the contrary. The vast majority of species (0+ / 0-)

      are extinct.  Our time span is short so far and we have not yet faced the threat we are creating more rapidly every day.  

      The changes have already begun their nonlinear phases so they can be abrupt and devastating.  I think you need a different crystal ball.

      An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.

        How about we BOTH get new ones? The entire planet will most decidedly not become uninhabitable (except perhaps through extended conflict for use of those still habitable spots). We're not talking nuclear winter here.

        But you have an agenda that I do not, so carry on with your dystopia.

        •  I want to be wrong. I won't be here much (0+ / 0-)

          longer.  I do worry about those coming after.
