14. I figure we humans have another 50-100 years.

At the rate we are destroying the biosphere, I see civilization collapsing within the next coupe of generations. There will be no significant response to global warming. At best it will get lip service from the big polluters, but no real effort will be made to curb it until it is way too late. All the burning of the natural gas in North Dakota is just adding more pollution to the air. And couple this with the fact that the bankers and the corporations own not just the US but, in point of fact the world, their greed will keep any government from making any significant reforms. To them money is more important than survival.
