Missing the Target On Purpose

But we are almost certainly going to miss our [global warming] deadline. We cannot get the 10 lost years back and by the time a new global agreement to replace the Kyoto accord is negotiated and put into effect, there will probably not be enough time left to stop the warming short of the point where we must not go.

So humanity is doomed by its own stupidity, like a monkey in a trap holding a banana refusing to let go to free itself.
