To each their own but so much of the passage below resonates: “I’m vegan myself (and have been for the past six years), but I’ve deliberately disconnected myself from the vegan lobby because frankly, it’s embarrassing.

I became vegan as a result of my beliefs in labour rights and feminism more than anything else. After all, it’s the female animals that are violently exploited for their reproductive functions. Cows are repeatedly and forcibly impregnated in order to produce milk, and their calves are immediately torn away to be sold as veal whilst we steal the milk to sell.

Veganism is faultlessly logical. Avoiding animal products makes sense on ethical, environmental and health grounds, and in terms of nonviolence and social justice too. It’s easy to see how it connects to human struggles.“

Four years ago when Rockefeller Brothers Fund & the World Council of Churches both divested from their fossil fuel assets, the writing on the wall began to emerge.
As positive signs all these divestment efforts are, witnessing the recent ecological devastation (California, Santa Barbara,...) hopefully it's not too little, too late.

Why single out Capitalism for anything? Like two world wars and a third one on the way.
It all has to do with this thing called "Unsustainable Development Patterns."
Perhaps the worst case of Unsustainable Capitalism is our very 'own' Capitalist Islamic State of Iran, in which the Islamic State has single handedly, destroyed our natural, environmental resources.
In only 38 years Mullahs have successfully destroyed a natural environment that has been around for thousands of years. That's a painful example of Unsustainable Development Pattern.
BTW, Other than Stalinist shitheads and Fatmeh Komandos no one really thinks USSR or PCR are true Socialist states.

Why single out capitalism as destructive to the world?

It's not as though communism has been kind to the environment. Take a look at the former USSR and China. Green communism is a Western latte sipping yuppy fantasy.

جنبشهای مردمی در استان خوزستان علیه جهنم جمهوری اسلامی و برای تحقق آزادی و بهبود زندگی روزمره سابقهء طولانیِ سی و هشت ساله ای دارد.
از "چهارشنبهء سیاه" به تاریخ ۹ خرداد ۱۳۵۸ در خرمشهر, که آغاز رسمی و گستردهء سرکوب مسلحانهء مردم بیگناه توسط نیروهای نظامی رژیم بود, تا ده ها, صدها و هزاران موارد دیگر در عرض ۳۸ سال اخیر, مردم خوزستان همواره نشان داده اند که هیچگاه دست از مقاومت و اعتراض برنمی دارند و تا سرنگونی جهنم جمهوری اسلامی به مبارزاتشان برای نیل به آزادی و بهبود شرایط حیات خویش, جنبشهای بر حق خود را ادامه خواهند داد.

تظاهرات توده ای اواخر بهمن ماه سال گذشته در اهواز یکی از جدید ترین فصول این سنت مبارزاتی است.

I totally agree with Michael E. Mann who said: " It is important to be up front about the risks of unmitigated climate change... there is also a danger in overstating the science in a way that presents the problem as unsolvable, and feeds a sense of doom, inevitability and hopelessness."

Here's a decent critique of Wallace-Wells, by Daniel Aldana Cohen.
www.jacobinmag.com/2017/07/climate-change-new-york-magazine-response

A critique which could be summed up by a word: Eco-apartheid. In Cohen's narrative "brutal inequalities, and the bullets that maintain them  —  not molecules of methane  —  are what will kill people."
This eco-apartheid thing sounds a bit like "Elysium," which is a great movie, and I have such a crush on Judy Foster! But that's another story.

Correct on the first count, but maybe not so fast with the doom and gloom.
As stark as this report maybe, it still has some pollyannaish moments in it ( growing corn in Greenland,...).
Author's own qualifications such as: "What follows is not a series of predictions of what will happen — that will be determined in large part by the much-less-certain science of human response," has an open-ended view of the impeding catastrophe.
The article here is almost like an update to Elizabeth Kolbert's "The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History"
Next generation has their work cut out for them, to say the least.
All these dire prognostications reminded me of this nifty scifi novel "The Age of Miracles." It's about how the Earth slows down, and days get longer and everything goes out of wack.
