From capitalism to socialism through ecological crisis, good idea.

Honestly, this fuzz about climate change really bores me. The earth has been existing for billions of year before humans appeared. And when humans have disappeared, it will exist for billions of years more. What's the problem if the period inbetween (when humans are alive) is a bit longer or shorter?

Try to see the complete picture, folks!

Sure Earth has existed for billions of years before humans, and could well exist for billions of years more after humans - I vaguely remember something about our 5 billion-year-old sun being half way through its life.

The problem is that a climate NOT capable of sustaining civilisation as we know it, is on the horizon - probably within your lifetime. Apart from sea level rise threatening our major coastline cities; and heat waves, droughts and other extreme weather events threatening almost everywhere on the planet; oceans warming and acidifying threatening sea life that many humans depend on - there will also be massive climate induced political conflict. If you think immigration is a problem today, you've seen nothing yet. About 1 million migrants/refugees moved to Europe in 2015. It is estimated that 15 million people will have to move from Bagladesh alone by 2050.

A problem on the horizon is as bad as a problem 5 mln years away. When mankind is to become extinct, why not in our time?

That train of thought is a slippery slope to your own suicide.

The problem is that we are living beyond our means, and our children and grandchildren will have to pick up the bill.

I don't want to sound too selfish but I'd prefer to live in a world of peace and love than one of conflict with the threat of extinction. Don't know about you but I'm enjoying life, and I suspect you are too - otherwise you wouldn't be brushing off the threat of extinction like water off a duck's back.

The upside is that if we do survive this period, ie. stabilise the climate and create a sustainanble world to prosper on, then humans (or the new life forms that we create), may outlive our sun.
