Weekly Commentary: Best To Prepare For Failure To Stop Climate Change

Weekly Commentary: Best To Prepare For Failure To Stop Climate Change
Dr. Aaron Lerner 11 October, 2018

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report describes the
extremely serious consequence of global warming of 2.0 degrees C vs. a 1.5
rise.

The IPCC focuses on what action could possibly succeed in limiting the
increase to 1.5.

It is far from clear that these programs can be pulled off.

So what then?

Isn't it the responsible thing to do to also prepare for failure rather than
rely on success?

For example:

What can be done so that agriculture and aquaculture meets the challenge of
2 degrees?

How can the redistribution of the world's population in the wake of a
substantial rise in water levels, or literally unbearable temperatures in
some areas, be accomplished via peaceful means?

To be clear - this is not to advocate a 2 degree increase.

Just to recognize that it is a very real possibility.
