I think the only thing that can awaken and mobilize the whole of humanity to act is when the whole system tips over and the current ecological chain collapses and undergo irreversible change. Millions upon millions will perish from environment catastrophe, starvation (due to collapse of the food chain) and ensuing wars for resources. It probably will not spell the end of humanity, but the surviving ones will learn to adapt and change.
