We keep hearing we're at the "worst case scenario 20/30/50 years ago" where it was an "Okay, what's the absolute WORST thing thing that could happen if humans were actively trying to destroy the planet?" Except for the times where we've exceeded those expectations. What's the estimate? The world will have to displace 1 in 6 people by 2030? 2035? due to rising water levels? Food and water shortage wars by 2050? I'm glad I'm going to be dead and gone before we get there.
