If you read a little closer I’m saying that most of those people are collateral damage on a species level. That is brutal but I don’t see a way around it. They have been weaponized against our planetary civilization. Tragically they will also be the first to go and they are already killing themselves off.
The real question is if we can maintain adequate, technology based societies to hold on and build a new civilization over the next century. It looks as if we will, now, lose what we have in the next twenty to thirty years.
