“As environmentalist Bill McKibben pointed out in an influential 2012 piece for Rolling Stone magazine, titled “Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math,” the planet has already warmed 0.8 degrees, and the carbon dioxide we have already emitted is set to warm it another 0.8, which means that, even without burning another hydrocarbon molecule, we are three-quarters of the way to our limit.”
Excerpt from this article on what would happen if we burned all the worlds fossil fuels. Super interesting read that was an eye opener for me. I knew humanity had a problem, but I didn’t know it was this dire.
Changes need to be made before things have gone too far. The only one who can stop this is us, let’s do something humanity, before our beautiful planet comes crashing down.
