Conclusion

It seems that a global program of sustainability is needed. It is not enough to reduce the rate of damage that civilization is inflicting on the globe; rather, a program of reversing the damage is urgently required. A zero carbon emissions program will not, in fact, be sufficient. What will be needed is an aggressive campaign to reverse the global damage inflicted since Drake first discovered oil in 1859. It will only take 200 years for civilization to consume all the oil created by plants and dinosaurs over 500 million years!
