Having earned a Master of Science in this very field in 1982, I have watched as ignorance and greed have made things worse faster then originally feared. I think we now have no chance of avoiding disaster. We cannot stop the outgassing of the permafrost, and the eventual outgassing of the methane hydrates on the seafloors.
