7. World War III, nuclear bombs going off everywhere, would be one way of dealing with the problem.

But probably not the best way.

So would a meteor strike of the sort that wiped out the dinosaurs.

We shall see.

Humanity may suffer even worse. It's pretty easy to predict a future where hundreds of millions of people die horribly every year from the consequences of climate change, with civilization making no progress, century after grinding century, thousands of years of misery.

Or we could leave fossil fuels in the ground, where they belong.
