There is also the possibility (one from which most of the world is operating) that the benefits of using fossil fuels outweighs the downside. Wealthier societies are much better able to deal with environmental changes, and the concentrated energy of fossil fuels allows for the speedier creation of wealth and the other benefits of a developed society.

Short term that's fine. Not sure the wealth-vs-environmental-disaster race will work out long term. But I'll be long gone.

Devil take the hindmost.
