Except it has. People have done it and died. Your analogy fails for another reason because you assume there is a trigger that is actually under our control. There is not. Global CO2 emissions are not going to decline not matter how much be we flagellate ourselves because humans need affordable energy to keep people fed and sheltered. The only actual discussion going on is not about lowering emissions but about how much do we waste pretending to lower emissions without actually killing the economy in the process. This discussion is not helped by the large number of people who are completely ignorant when it comes to economics - "economics deniers" would not be an unreasonable label for these folks.

Well let's see, I am sure you have heard by now that cars, for instance, will run on things opther than gas or diesel. Is it not our choice which kind of car we buy next time we need one?
