      Scientists believe that ocean waters are now at the highest temperature they have been for over 1,000 years and heating at a faster rate than at any time in the last 2,000 years. A global sea level rise of around 1 metre is predicted by the end of the century, endangering more than 200 million people worldwide.

      Should mankind focus its energy on reducing the problem, or adapting to an inevitable change in our planet?

      I don’t believe we are capable of adapting to that extent. And how completely stupid would it be to focus on adapting to environmental change instead of at least trying to address the issue, which is human overpopulation?

      Ocean temperatures are a barometer for the general state of the environment globally. Stabilising ocean temperatures is critical over the next few decades. If we can do that and begin to gradually reduce human population, it may be possible to turn things around. Trying is the minimum we should do.

        What is also essential is that people think beyond their own lifetimes. It will take the planet centuries to recover, so we need to focus on future generations. Have less children, but also work to create a better future for them. This paradigm shift will continue through them and their children.
