How 'bout ... we wind down the use of fossil fuels to cut down on emissions so it will be less disruptive and less costly to adapt to climate change?
Anyone who does the math on economically plausible reductions given the tech currently available can only conclude that emission reductions will have next to zero effect on the future impacts of climate change. We will end up adapting no matter what. The only question is how much effort is wasted on futile gestures.

.Have you looked at the improvements in renewables technology in the last decade?
And all those improvements show is that wind and solar cannot meet our energy needs because of the problems created by the unreliable nature of wind and solar. These limits have become painfully obvious in every jurisdiction that has attempted to force the wide scale deployment of solar and wind.
