Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps you're correct. However, human history seems to suggest that we are more likely to wait until it's too late before we decide to do anything. A fairly large percentage of scientists (with relevant expertise) are saying that we are close to the climate change tipping point. So when does the "not quite" part of not-quite-inevitability of rational planning kick in?

A decade from now is too late, so apparently the prediction is conservatives of the world will in the next half-decade do a voluntary about-face and become uber-conservationists?
