You idiots never stop with y0ur man made nonsense.

There weren’t 7.4 billion people living on the planet 55 million years ago, when the temperatures were 8°C warmer than they are today (during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, which I just looked up).

The problem with modern climate change is the disruptions to global ecosystems will create chaos for people and all other living things, due to extreme weather events, temperature changes, disappearing glaciers and permafrost in the Arctic, and sea level rise.

Just because the Earth was hotter 50 million years ago than it is today (the first humans evolved only 3 million years ago) is not an argument for ignoring our contribution to today’s climate change with greenhouse gas emissions and 7.4 billion people (and climbing) who have to share the planet.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
