Although I agree that we human beings should regard adaptation to climate changes and impacts as a gigantic scientific project, I still persist that reducing greenhouse-gas emissions is also impending. From the standpoint of a sequel, we should try our best to accommodate to climate impacts and minimize the negative influences.
