Will you profit by your personal extinction? The players at the commodities exchanges (Chicago mercantile, Gates Foundation African futures market, Goldman Sachs index and others) are probably drooling over the prospect of Midwest drought induced profitunities. We may starve without a whimper but, don't worry, they'll have enough money to buy food at any foreseeable price.

". . . Since I wrote one of the first books for a general audience about global warming way back in 1989, and since I've spent the intervening decades working ineffectively to slow that warming, I can say with some confidence that we're losing the fight, badly and quickly – losing it because, most of all, we remain in denial about the peril that human civilization is in.

"When we think about global warming at all, the arguments tend to be ideological, theological and economic. But to grasp the seriousness of our predicament, you just need to do a little math. For the past year, an easy and powerful bit of arithmetical analysis first published by financial analysts in the U.K. has been making the rounds of environmental conferences and journals, but it hasn't yet broken through to the larger public. This analysis upends most of the conventional political thinking about climate change. And it allows us to understand our precarious – our almost-but-not-quite-finally hopeless – position with three simple numbers. . . ." Bill McKibben, Rolling Stone August 2, 2012
