    The last time there were co2 levels like this was about three million years ago, but humans have gotten back there in less then two centuries, basically instantly in geologic terms. What could go wrong?

    We are in an apocalypse. We are not approaching it or dangerously close or anything like that. We. Are. In. It. Now. The suffering has only just begun. Welcome to a front row seat to the end of most life on this planet. Sorry rich folks, we never really figured out how to leave this blue marble to live on another. You’re going to be suffering too it seems. You can’t pay off the climate after all. I genuinely want you to enjoy your very expensive bunkers. They will help you survive long enough to face an extremely hellish earth that already killed most of us. You deserve that little gift.

    The next decade is going to be fucking insane, let alone the following years. Good luck out there.

    It concerns me that the article blames this on El Nino and continued burning of fossil fuels.

    I’m sure those are contributing, but what about the wildfires that we saw last year? They are a feedback effect (higher temperatures makes fires more likely; fires release CO2; CO2 increases temperatures). If feedback effects have started, then everybody needs to panic.
