> Melting slower is not enough.

Well, we've already accepted that it's the only realistic option, because 4 years is not enough to do anything else.

If you really think that, then you should just buy a canoe today.

A canoe won't do you much good.

And even getting it to melt slower than it's currently doing requires more effort than we're currently putting into this. We can and should do way more than is currently happening.

I am utterly disgusted by this literal "apres moi le deluge" attitude.

This is made worse because it's the ultimate commons problem: nobody is paying, everyone is suffering the costs. At least the people who uttered this stupidity paid for it and dearly, and damage was prevented.

(Albeit a calamity followed.)

This time, the scale and stakes are much bigger, potentially extinction level.
