Runaway global warming only 1 degree away?
Earth is already as warm as at any time in the last 10,000 years, and is within 1 °C of being its hottest for a million years, says Hansen's team. Another decade of business-as-usual carbon emissions will probably make it too late to prevent the ecosystems of the north from triggering runaway climate change, the study concludes.
Well, at least the global warming will kill most of the humankind, which will finally put an end to pollution. So the world will correct itself eventually. We'll just all be dead, and suffer horribly while dying.
Considering that humans have already exploited most of readily available resources, how likely it is that a new high-tech culture could form after we're all gone?
If we're alone in the universe, we're making very sure that we'll also be the only ones ever.
