    that British Columbia and Alaska, as close to the ocean as possible, but high enough to avoid sea level rise, will be the best areas for Americans to relocate.  But will the Canadians take us?  Thus, Alaska.

    Most likely, it is impossible at this point to increase our odds of survival.  If anybody survives, it will be up to pure dumb luck.

    There is a rapidly-growing consensus developing that we are well and truly screwed.  We still cling to hope, of course.  "Surely there is a techno-fix," etc.  But the prognosis is bad and is rapidly getting worse.

    Extinction seems like an increasingly-likely outcome, and we have trouble wrapping our minds around this possibility.  Denial is hard-wired into us (it has never been easy to be human) and we can rest assured that the worse the objective situation becomes, the deeper most of us will sink into denial.
