Exponential curve? This is highly worrying.

We're screwed.

Or, some people in some socioeconomic classes are screwed because they won't have the money or network to adapt healthily to climate change and will suffer materially.

What should we learn from our mistakes leading up to this crisis, going forward?

What shall we, as technologists, do to reduce the suffering and to simply Make Things Better for all people?

We should have listened to the Club of Rome in 1972, "The Limits to Growth". Now, it is too late.
