No surprise here, while there are some things we can prepare for if things get really bad we will be pretty much at the hands of what Mother Earth gives us. One day we will pay for all of man's wrong doings and it isn't going to be pretty.

We have the technology to clean up a great deal of the mess that we've made of this planet; the real question is whether we have the will or not.

The climate change is having serious repercussions on the Earth as we used to know it, which is truly unfortunate. I feel sorry for all the species that are being and/or will be affected by it despite not having caused it and without being able to change it. Nobody's prepared, but only the flexible will survive. Hope we could slow the process down or alleviate the problems at least--which, naturally, we could not do without a will--, as I do not think we are so powerful as to be able to stop it from going on.

In other words, or to be more precise,--
although I believe we, humans, share the blame for climate change, we certainly are not almighty {although many of us like to believe so...}, thus we are only able to aggravate or alleviate the problems of the ongoing process at this point.

Human civilization must abandon fossil fuels and switch to zero emissions technologies now.

Therefore, we had better prepare for the worst. Insourcing, raising your own food, banding together with your neighbors and friends - we can hope for the best, but we can't let ourselves be caught with our pants down.

Corporations and public need to be pounded with "Things To Do To Prepare For Climate Change.".
