That really isn't how the primate brain operates.
I agree. We developed mathematics as math is useful, but much of math is alien to our normal thought process.
All models are wrong, if you look close enough. Good models provide understanding, testable predictions, and allow exploration of alternatives.
The vast flow of money and power associated with fossil fuels complicates everything. Even as current climate models are very good, there is a whole industry devoted to denial of climate science.

I hope you are wrong. That point is far too late in time. The time needed to change the economic system is on the order of decades, and the climate system will continue to worsen for centuries. We need, somehow, to "converge" earlier. Wish us luck, we need it.
