  •  The earth may not care about the source, but it (4+ / 0-)

    does care about the rapidity of the release. The speed at which CO2 concentrations are rising is unprecedented. 2ppm/year is drastic - and cannot continue for very many more years. In the past these concentrations rose slowly over thousands of years - and took thousands of years - or millions of years - to abate via natural processes.

    •  And still touched off huge changes in climate. (6+ / 0-)

      It's only our climate stability over the past 10,000-12,000 years that has allowed the development of agriculture, and hence, "civilization".  

      We lose that, and there's no way we keep billions alive on this planet.
