In the long term it guarantees that China will dominate us (and Europe) economically.
It's true unfortunately. I very much believe we (everyone) are well and truly effed. Without the entire planet being on board with a plan and willing to pay for it, it's like trying to refill a leaky bucket. You are as good as your weakest link.
I do think we'll eventually figure it out, but not until some major cities are underwater or made uninhabitable by climate change. Human tendency is not to look further ahead than our own nose.
We'll get there guys. In the mean time, tell your children to invest in sand bags, or the high ground.

had it right, build that wall, LOL.
