Somehow I hadn't considered this precise thought before: what happens when the scientific consensus concludes that we're past the point where we could have prevented our own auto-demise? So far science is telling us that we maybe, just barely, have a chance to avoid a terminal fate if we exercise a realistically unachievable level of collective restraint, but that provides us, politically and intellectually, with an escape clause. Hope. Emotional salvation.

What happens when that escape clause is gone? I don't like the implications.
