And over the next few decades, scientists warn, the planet will somehow become even more on fire, unless we—the United States, sure, but also the other 194 countries in the world, all of whom must constantly renegotiate the precise terms of their ever-more-fragile earthly coexistence—do something drastic. Fast.

No AI currently exists, however, that can outduel a human strapped into a fighter jet in a high-speed, high-G dogfight.
