Its too late already, the climate is changing, CO2 is at 413 ppm, (350 ppm is considered the safe limit) even if we stopped all pollution now it would take 20 years before things start to turn around and no one is even slowing down, things are speeding up.
It is apparent we will not evolve into a Type One civilization.
The scale has three designated categories. This is the first 3 of 6 parts of the Kardashev scale.
A Type I civilization, also called a planetary civilization, can use and store all of the energy available on its planet.
A Type II civilization, also called a stellar civilization, can use and control energy at the scale of its planetary system.
A Type III civilization, also called a galactic civilization, can control energy at the scale of its entire host galaxy.
