One is may. The other is could. No one cares about what may happen. No one cares about what could happen.

The final sentence sounds pretty scary, but scares no one. I quote.

As a result, the era of oil, gas and coal may yet live on – and, if it does, many of the rest of us may not.

People tend to be optimistic about the future. People evolved that way over hundreds of millions of years. Alarmists say, you may die next year, you may die in 10 years, your children may die in 50 years, your grandchildren may die in 100 years. The more alarmists threaten people like that, the more they are offending people and putting people off.

A prediction uses the word "will", as in "will happen."

Merely identifying a possibility involves the word "could", as in "could happen."

Global Warming dupes are so easily convinced that identifying a possibility counts as "making a prediction". When the "prediction" doesn't happen, of course they are quick to point out that it only said "could."

IPCC prediction from AR5:
Some low-lying develop- ing countries and small island states are expected to face very high impacts that could have associated damage and adaptation costs of several percentage points of gross domestic product (GDP)

IPCC prediction from AR5: Amazon tipping point: Moist Amazon forests could change abruptly to less-carbon-dense, drought- and fire-adapted ecosystems

IPCC prediction from AR5:For most metrics, global cost differences are small under scenarios of global participation and cost-minimizing mitigation pathways, but implications for some individual countries and sectors could be more significant

CAGW creeps are saying CAGW is the most pressing existential threat to the American people. That is an extremely offensive statement. Parents tell CAGW creeps to stop threatening their families or else they'll call the cops.
