Imagine China doubles their coal usage every fifth year. Seas are rising. Hurricanes are a monthly event. Snow caps, what snow caps? Natural disasters threaten the stability of global shipping, coastal cities can't keep up rising the sea walls, widespread droughts are seen as normal, and there is one player contributing more to this than next ten countries combined.

What year is it acceptable to do more than write a strongly worded letter about knocking off the assault on human's race survival?

If things have already gone so bad, war isn't happening anyway. Everyone will be too busy dealing with their own problems.

The only realistic way out of this is rich western countries subsidizing the poorer ones to switch to cleaner sources.
