21,000 years ago, there was two miles of ice above the Adirondack Mountains. To my mind, conditions have improved considerably since then! Climate change has been happening for hundreds of millions of years; cycles of extinction and blossoming species. Our fate matters not a whit in the big picture of Earth history. Humans should accept their smallness and move on. Nobody is going to stop burning fossil fuels until they're effectively all gone. It's no big deal; species extinct themselves all the time through resource depletion.

The whole premise of STOPPING GLOBAL WARMING seems to be predicated on the fallacy that humans are worthy of saving. Given virtually unlimited energy resources over the past hundred years, the only result has been the largest spates of carnage and self-killing in the history of humans (that we know of). The climate culling of humans will be no great loss. Paleoclimatology tells the tale. Check it out. The entire atmosphere of the planet used to be CO2 dominant until a massive blue-green algae takeover converted it to the oxygen atmosphere we take for granted today. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/climatechange/visualizations/paleoclimate.html

The planet is going to be just fine. It's us that are going to be toast.. and much as I like being here... it's probably not a bad thing for the planet. See.. Earth History.

The increase in CO2 levels is due to human activity. Should we just kill ourselves with our own accumulated wastes or should we try to fix what we have done?

Maybe we can't do anything about what we've done, but we sure as shit can stop making it worse, Oil Slut and her ilk be damned.
