    That's simply false, and i have no idea where you got it. The pervading view is that we will almost certainly overshoot our targets, but that any progress towards slowing the rate of warming and the total amount of warming we're committed too will be a strong positive for humanity.

    Your response is a bit emotional and over reacting. I will post references. I believe the 2019 UN report came to these conclusions.

    Using CO2 in a process to produce energy requires an energy source, and heads up the only practical energy source is the sun.

    Emotional? How can you tell? Seemed perfectly calm to me.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Calling something simply false without a coherent response is an emotional response.

    Yes , anything we do will have a positive effect, but that does not mean it will resolve the problem. I did remotely propose that we should not do everything possible to reduce our carbon imprint and reduce the impact of increasing CO2 output from human sources.

    Meh... I think you're being too sensitive.
