net zero emissions by mid-century would largely avert the climate
crisis, whereas crossing the same threshold at the end of the century
would likely lock in for generations climate damages that may prove
utterly unacceptable. And yet, the latter scenario seems at least as
likely as the former. With what tools would we cope with such an
eventuality once emissions reductions have been exhausted?
