NOTHING TO SEE HERE
I lie, or perhaps I'm just projecting. It may take a few years, but in the not too distant future there might be no one to see anything. I lie again, no person might be around to see anything, but a cockroach has sensory organs that will help it crawl all over the ruins of our so called civilization.
In the late 19th Century scientists understood that CO2 would effect atmospheric temperatures. As a science fiction fan I've been reading stories that warned about greenhouse gases since the 1960s. The FFAH (Fossil Fuel Ass Holes) had confirmed the science as far back as the 1970s. Blah Blah Blah. And still we do nothing.
I wish I could ask a Dodo if Man had the capacity to adversely affect an ecosystem.
WAIT! Senator Graham! Is it possible we are harming the environment that sustains us?
Well, enough of my yackin'...

"To conclude this month’s dispatch, a UN official recently announced that governments are “not on track” to cap global temperatures to below 2°C, the goal of the 2015 Paris climate talks. Many scientists have long warned that a 1°C warming was already enough to lock in catastrophic ACD impacts. We are already over 1°C. The ongoing failure of the world’s governments to face these facts guarantees a lasting and devastating impact for all species on Earth, including humans."
