And where is your evidence that "doing something" will actually help? You have nothing but blind faith.  Anyone who sits down and does the math when it comes to the energy our society needs to function and the technology available to us can only come to the conclusion that "doing something" is futile given the alleged time frames. The only rational course of action is preserve our resources and adapt because that is what we will end up doing anyways. But instead of thinking rationally about the choices we really have you want to pretend we have choices we don't and you want to force other people to spend their time and resources on pointless exercises that do nothing but make you feel better about yourself. What incredible selfishness! If you want to reduce CO2 emissions then make your own choices and spend your own money. Leave people who do not share your futile need to "do something" out of it. i.e. keep your religion to yourself.

How are you so certain you know what we will have to deal with and whether we will be able to. You are relying on no more but blind faith. Preserve what resources, you donít even know what you will need or whether it will even exist. You must also think dealing with the results of drug addiction is preferable to dealing with its causes.
Donít call me selfish, you just want to continue living as you are, leaving the mess to those kids you respect so little. They arenít having it.
