    "When we redefine “hope” in the Anthropocene it must not include having solutions to our problems. It must include being able to live with problems we are facing that have no solutions. And that despite the problems our species is up against we must find a better way to live so we can have brighter days in thought and action. In this redefined “hope” we will know that everything isn’t going to be alright, and that we are a flawed species. Despite knowing these things there will be a shift in thought and consciousness."

    even if the earth heated up 50 degreees; a few of us would still manage to survive...

    how close are we, as a species, from being extinction-proof?; or said in other terms, how close are we to colonize other planets?
    once we figure out how to colonize other planets in the solar system, survival odds (as a species) grow several orders of magnitude.
