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.

The wonders of climate change. I can relate to the inhabitants of Arizona, since I happen to live in a place where summer temperature is typically at 47°C. Life without air conditioners in such climate would be truly unbearable. But even with modern technology it is still quite difficult. I have a summer class in college at 2 o'clock and I when I leave the house it is so blistering hot that I feel my skin is getting poked with needles and could burst at any moment. Good times.

"For Katrina Spade, a young Seattle-based architect, the rise of cremation signifies that the US—and the rest of the world—is thirsty for better alternatives. “People are not enamored by the process of cremation,” she says. “Most people that I talk to find it to be an acceptable default, but don’t necessarily think, ‘Oh I love fire, I definitely want to be incinerated after I die.’”

So Spade has come up with her own meaningful solution: Recomposition Centers, where instead of taking up space or adding to the harmful chemicals in the atmosphere, human bodies can be converted into soil."

"Congratulations" on the occasion of America joining N. Korea, Syria and Nicaragua; as the only four countries in the world not carrying out the Paris Environmental Accord.
