Carbon Up 5.9%

In this article by Bill McKibben, it is reported that atmospheric carbon went up by 5.9% in 2010. At these rates of carbon increase, we don’t have long before the atmosphere is unalterably ruined – producing climate warming that will lead to a catastrophic rise in sea levels, and all the rest of “climate weirding” that we are beginning to see. But, don’t worry about the Earth, which has experienced huge climate changes in the past. Worry, rather, about your descendants, who will be born into a much less habitable planet than you have enjoyed. Bill McKibben
