How serious is climate change?

I just posted the following on the Transition California web site concerning the evidence that climate change can be quick and disastrous unless we get fantastically more intelligent in how we treat our biosphere:

What do you think getting fantastically more intelligent in how we treat our biosphere would look like?

A social application that perhaps mimics how the cells in our associative cortex coordinate, some 70 billion or so, without any fixed hierarchy. That might be the infrastructure. As far as outward appearances, I think we will see us going through a paradigm shift quickly whereby we lose second-order cybernetic assumptions as focus points and instead sustain real things like, people, housing, other living things, ecosystems, water, food, etc. It might begin to look a bit like the Venus Project which just released their film at http://www.thevenuspr...­ . Maybe Moglen's explorations describe it a bit too: http://www.youtube.co...­ . The movie Thrive might kind of describe it but that vision apparently includes the use of money which I see as unworkable as does Jacque Fresco of the Venus Project.

For a quick take on what second-order cybernetic assumptions might be, consider proper nouns, words we capitalize within a sentence, as the codification of our biases.

All for one and one for all. Everything or nothing at all.
