Our world is gonna die. Humanity can't survive this shit. I have just become resigned to it. I'm prepared.
Climate change is going to affect those economics. There are going to be a lot fewer rich people than he talks about because of the massive exodus of a billion people across the globe, or even billions. That's going to cause a lot of strife, and the governments of the world are preparing for this in part through becoming more militarized. This is my theory and it's not far fetched. There is no NWO or Illuminati but all of the world leaders are well versed on what the future holds for this planet.
It's going to be hell.
Black carbon emissions from biomass and fossil fuels in rural India
"About 3 billion human beings in developing countries, who subsist on a daily income of less than a day (IEA, 2007) rely on solid biomass fuels for cooking and space heat- ing, contributing to about 25 % of the global emissions of BC and about 50 % of the anthropogenic emissions of BC (Bond et al., 2007). "
The difference with black carbon is that it hangs around, it doesn't dissipate. The particulates have a much more intense local heating effect than, say, your Los Angeles or Houston traffic jam. There's so much BC being shot into the air in India that it could change the monsoon season. Since we're only now figuring out the role of black carbon and biomass on climate change, it's hard to know how any of this stuff is going to unfold. I'm not nearly as freaked out by it as I used to be, but as usual the poorest billions will suffer the most.
Or will they? Maybe Dyson is right and all thos Indians will move to Greenland in 60 years.
This captured my feelings perfectly: http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-suddenly-realizes-this-jus t-going-to-be-a-t,30195/

I doubt wealth has that much influence on metabolism. Everyone puts out the same amount of CO2.
