Maybe you personally would fail to adapt and go hungry, but I assure you that I'd easily be able to find dinner, and so would most other humans.

Protein is protein, fat is fat and carbs are carbs.

Then there is seafood which is the same or simmilar to what was available then fish, mussles, crabs, clams, oysters, and the like then there is the fact that 90% of the seaweeds are eddibe. I'm sure the homo whatever it becomes will survive just fine in regards to food.

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

Some humans seem to be getting fatter as the CO2 increases.

In more ways than one.... possibly another inconvenient truth?

Please don't let our delicious tropical reef fish and yummy mud crabs in on that apparent secret.

Sounds good to me on a superficial level but it's a complicated issue, not least of which is a lot of misinformation by labeling many standard business deductions as tax breaks or subsidies. The fossil fuel industry is capital-intensive and highly cyclical. In any given year, for example, Congress can authorize a budget which includes accelerated depreciation on capital expenditures such as vehicles & heavy equipment. This can allow for much larger tax deductions for oil cos., but also spurs economic activity for many other non-fossil fuel related industries that produce that equipment, to say nothing of benefitting countless nos. of workers. Or maybe the "subsidy" takes the form of favorable bank loans for financing the new equipment, which in turn stimulates lending. In short, since the fossil fuel industry is at present, like it or not, the basis of our industrial society's economic pyramid, its economic health is inextricably tied to the overall economy.

So it's not so simple as just stopping the "tax breaks" & "subsidies," but if you can be more specific I'm all ears.
