Someday Our Redemption

If mankind destroys civilization by making much of our planet uninhabitable by excessive burning of fossil fuels (unsequestration of carbon), then at least those that follow will not be able to so easily repeat that mistake, because the bulk of easily obtained oil and coal will have already been removed from temptation’s way.

Our descendants will be forced to be smarter about renewable energy sources. And if they’re less greedy, maybe we will become worthy of traveling to the stars.
