That's probably correct, but perhaps not certain.  It looks like a
really aggressive power satellite project could keep the CO2 short of
the 450 ppm level.

As a side effect of that effort, we might be able to put sunshades in L1.

Of course we still have to worry about the friendly AIs eating our brains.

(Assuming they have not done it already and we are simulations.)
