I hope those oil companies can get that sweet sweet Texas T while they can. /s I hope I never live long enough to see this planet become uninhabitable. Feel horrible for those who do and tried to not kill Earth.

There are other planets in the Galaxy. Maybe it's a good thing we won't pass the filter, imagine if we discover FTL travel while we have imperialism.

We're not, humans are stupid primates, same biological class as rodents, throughout history we've expanded used resource then expanded again. We're not capable of rapid change as a collective, short of some technological miracle the world is going to be a much shit tier place for mamallia in the coming century and beyond.

Other primates don’t pull this shit.

This is part of being human.

It'll happen the moment you accept a new nuclear power plant down by your local Walmart and all Walmart items being required to participate in a company buyback program for clean/safe disposal and recycle as is done for batteries and tires. It'll happen whenever you accept the necessity of waiting for the bus and permitting construction of a railroad, truck terminal and auto wrecker near your local Caddilac dealership.

I'm being facetious but you get the idea. The sorts of compromises required are too much for the average person to accept. By the time it does matter, people will just accept that birds went extinct, that gardens can't be made without special chemicals, or that rain is toxic. The sort of world where standing outside for more than 20 minutes is dangerous due to ozone depletion and reproduction requires special drugs to offset microplastics in breast milk. This is already happening in parts of the US and they are begging Trump to take america back, build the wall, and stop the liberals from taking away plastic bags.

i don’t think the average consumer has even close to as much responsibility as large companies. if we all reduced our carbon footprint to zero as average people, we’re still on the fast track to global extinction

Only when said companies start losing money for destroying the planet, instead of profiting.

But here in Brazil when we fight against the people who destroy the forest, we are called "communists" and shut down.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 82%. (I'm a bot)

> Two new scientific review articles by international teams of researchers paint a bleak picture of the state of the Amazon rainforest: The critical ecosystem is being damaged at an unprecedented pace, they warn, which may usher in "a qualitatively different global climate regime" with grievous effects on biodiversity and human welfare.

> Specifically, they compared how fast humans are changing the Amazon with the speed at which other natural processes are affecting it.

> Brazil's recently elected president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, has pledged to safeguard the Amazon after damage to the rainforest accelerated under his predecessor, Jair Bolsonaro.

‘Deteriorating’ as if it’s not being actively destroyed. ‘I swear, I didn’t touch it! It’s been deteriorating for decades!’
