David Wallace-Wells - The Uninhabitable Earth

Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak —

There has been five mass extinctions, but only one was caused by an asteroid, all the others were caused by rising levels of carbon, and each of these occasions the extinction was near total with 97% of all life on Earth being destroyed. We are putting carbon into the atmosphere at a rate that is 10 x faster than has ever occurred in the past.
