One can only hope. And try. To convince the still multitudinous Ostriches and Deniers.
Spread the word.

I can't think of too many instances (OK... none off hand) where humanity proactively changed course for the better.

When the Florida Keys freeze over, which brings into question the prediction in 1983 or so that those same coral reefs were going to die due to ocean water temperatures sustained at less than 60 degrees after surviving for millions of years, longer than the existence of the human race.

Note, I did not chop your post up into segments and omit the first important paragraph.

Reefs are still there.

It's already possible to refine vegetable oils and animal fats, either as a replacement for petroleum or blended with it, and IIRC it's currently done by the Finnish Neste Oil (producing biogasoline, synthetic Diesel, biopropane and bioplastics) and by the American Propel Fuels (at least their synthetic green Diesel is made out of refined oils and fats). Since processed meats are consumed more frequently than fresh meat in the United States, sure there's a lot of locally-available feedstock for biofuels that wouldn't require major adaptations to be used and then become a good option to start a transition from fossil to renewable energy sources.
