Is 2050 Really The End?

That dastardly climate change . . .

A Grim New Definition of Generation X

Nihilism is about to become the best worst possible life strategy.

Excerpt:
People born in the 1960s may be the last human beings who will get to live out their full actuarial life expectancies.Climate change now represents a near- to mid-term existential threat” to humanity, warns a recent policy paper by an Australian think tank. Civilization, scientists say, could collapse by 2050. Some people may survive. Not many.

Some dismiss such purveyors of apocalyptic prognoses as hysterics. To the contrary, they’re Pollyannas. Every previous “worst-case scenario” prediction for the climate has turned out to have understated the gravity of the situation. “Paleoclimatologists have shown that past warming episodes show that there are mechanisms which magnify its effects, not represented in current climate models from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to the Paris Accords,” reports The Independent. It’’s probably too optimistic to assume that we’ll make it to 2050.

Gives new meaning to Generation X.
