The "if" is doing a shiatton of heavy lifting there, especially in light of an ongoing, human caused catastrophe that so far we plan to fix with technology that doesn't exist (carbon capture). The author seems to remember we can go extinct but somehow can't see the most imminent issue - or rather, range of issues caused by human over exploitation of the natural systems we depend on for survival.

Anyone talking about avoiding extinction events for humanity without noticing the ongoing actual threat is either a fool or a charlatan. Pandemics, AI, and nuclear weapons are all things to be concerned about, but actual scientists keep saying we're gambling with our survival with fossil fuels. Somehow that doesn't make the radar. Hmmmm.
