It's probably true. What's really frustrating is that we never should have got here. Governments and corporations knew the situation in the 1980s. We could have had a much less costly transition to a different energy economy if we'd started in earnest then. Everything now is going to be more drastic and more expensive the longer we leave it.In 2007 I was told the end date to avoid climate change was 2015. I just can't see it stopped without resorting to geoengineering. The economic and political resistance is too strong. The only other way if some new, clean, abundant and cheap method of electricity generation is perfected, that would make fossil fuel uneconomic. Maybe they will get nuclear fusion working, but even if they do, it might not be cheap.
