I'm more sanguine about AGW and our prospects than I used to be. Yes, we're in for some difficult times ahead, I don't doubt that, but frankly, the folks who are in denial about it are in for a big surprise, and there is a lot of movement.

At some point, the oil and gas industries are going to have to shift from digging up ancient carbon to extracting the carbon we've already released into the atmosphere and oceans. We certainly have the skills and tech to build global scale industrial plant to do that.
In summary, yes there's tons of work to do, but no, all is not lost in my view.
