Exactly, and I would suggest that one of the first achievements for a
singularity level AGI should be
the development of several detailed 50 year +++ global weather prediction
and proposed modification plans
complete with input/output time/location etc specifications.
These sort of plans might give the species something besides petty turf wars
and religeous/political/wealth management
bickering we see now. Global warming if it is occuring is just the kick in
the arse nations and persons need to
force longer term global scale decision making to occur.
Or it will enable rational transhumans/H+ to move ahead of the modern
humans like we moved ahead of the neanderathals???.... wishful thinking???

I absolutely refuse to believe that the persons quoted above have the
ability to model local changes in precipitation fifty years from now.
Nobody has so far been able to model the pattern of multiyear droughts
that have been coming in and going in the US for thousands of years
(credited with destroying the Anasazi, etc., and responsible for the
Dust Bowl in the 20th century). Now some presumptuous activists claim
that they can not only predict the weather in 50 years, nay, they can
predict it while taking into consideration global warming whose
magnitude is itself estimated with a roughly 500% margin of error.
Nah, I know science when I read it, and this isn't science.
