Paradoxically, the shut-down of the AMOC and the resulting cooling of Europe will be the best proof of global warming.

As TS Eliot said in The Hollow Men,  " This is the way the world ends

    Not with a bang but a whimper"

We know not what changes we have wrought for the future.  Through wildfires, floods, tornadoes, droughts, hurricanes, rising sea temperatures, species decimation...wars, plagues, pandemics.  Monoculture agriculture, animal containment feed lots, increasing population even as thousands upon thousands are killed.  Homocidal bitching going on in every kitchen...

Europe may well suffer a new ice age, and in a millenia perhaps new forests will generate helping to scour the carbon from the air, new forests where once was industrial farming.  Wildlife recover.  Populations of Sapiens wiped out.  

I dream of the wild.  The eventual wild.
