NTE
Acronym for Near Term Extinction, or the prospect that humanity will make the planet earth functionally unlivable by continuing to dump gigatons of carbon into the atmosphere and triggering unstoppable, exponential feedbacks of methane release.
Putting money into your 401k again? Guess you haven't taken into account NTE.
