This is really happening
Within the next 5-10 years the world will realize that we have changed our environment in a permanent and destructive way
As far as modern humanity's needs, the full implementation of the technical potential of solar and wind energy development can be complimented by the potential for safe nuclear energy.
Combining these carbon-free energy sources with the necessary energy conservation and dietary/agricultural production changes that will be necessary, on a global scale, in this coming epoch of perennial drought and heat waves, will allow us all to have both the equivalent of unlimited energy and provide for the opportunity to restore our ecosystem to a sustainable CO2 concentration level.
Whether or not we will do this depends on how we finally do react when the realities of global warming become a certitude in the minds of the vast majority of the population. It will get much worse before it gets better. But to say that society is "evil" or that we have no possible solution is worse than cynical, it is careless and hopeless and an absolute falsehood that is based on faulty premises.
Only 100 years ago, in western society, women were given much fewer citizenship rights, animals had no rights whatsoever and there was no such thing as environmental protections. We have come a long way in our understanding and this increase in understanding is growing at an exponential rate.
There is still hope. Hope for an equitable modernity that orients toward the preservation of future generations and the restoration of our ecosystems. There are valid examples of this happening (have happened!) all over the world.
It is everyone's job, those of us who are accurately informed, to understand what they can do on a personal level to ensure that this is where we end up going.
