The Climate Reality Project sent me the rough draft of the National Climate Assessment, which is open to review and commentary until April 12.

Here is something to see before any comments to the NCA;

and more to peruse;

and still more to think about;
Hansen told us how to deal with AGW back in his TV Special in 2006. A 90% reduction in fossil fuel use within a decade.
In his book, "Storms of My Grandchildren" he said to immediately replace most coal fired power plants with Gen IV nuclear and the rest of our energy needs with solar, wind, and various hydro power. He also said population reduction is absolutely necessary to not only reduce energy demand, but depletion and other pollution.
So the answers have been out there a long time, and only selfish stupidity has kept them from being implemented in time.
If you read about the end results of insufficient action, there is no ability to adapt for the length of time thermageddon will affect the biosphere.
I suppose you can pray for an act of God type geological event, or prepare yourself spiritually for near future man caused calamities. [-o< :mrgreen:
This article says at present emissions rates we will definitely cross tipping points by 2024;
