Are We That Stupid? Because we have done nothing yet, now we must prepare for a world 4° C warmer. This used to be the ‘worst case‘ scenario and is now the best we can hope for, accompanied by abrupt and irreversible climate shifts. And new studies show that it is the total amount of CO2 released, not the emission rate nor the atmospheric concentration that is the deciding factor. The longer we wait to Do Something, the quicker we will have to stop burning fossil fuel. Not cut back, stop.No oil, no coal. And, yes, we are exactly that stupid.” -CK Michaelson
