Sustaining Future

Time is running, fast...

If humanity is to keep the global rise of temperature to within 2 deg C, the atmospheric CO2 content needs to be kept at below 350 ppm. At this moment, it is at 390 ppm and still rising fast. Unless any new power plant using fossil fuel is stopped, the chances of humanity surviving this crisis is dangerously unacceptable.

Of course, we can only capture the current CO2 from the atmosphere using projects such as Greening the desert or Seawater farming (Eritrea). Unfortunately, due to political instability, Eritrea project has ended.

Is humanity really that dumb?
