Faster than the last time Yellowstone blew it's top?
Or any other super volcano ?
I highly doubt it.

so you are saying we are all going to die. Cool, I agree completely.
I do have a suggestion though. Since it likely won't be today, or tomorrow, you may as well enjoy yourself and not worry about the silly #. When it happens, it will happen. Good news is, the grocery still has beer.
And I hear polar bear is good eating, so we can do something positive and not let them go to waste and just die when there is no more ice. Steaks and roasts. Mmmmmmm, good.
The research team developed a new approach and was able to determine the duration of the onset of an important past climate event, the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), 56 million years ago.
"As far as we know, the PETM had the largest carbon release during the past 66 million years," Zeebe said.
Zeebe and co-authors Andy Ridgwell, of the University of Bristol and University of California, and James Zachos, of the University of California, combined analyses of chemical properties of sediment cores dating back to the PETM with numerical simulations of Earth's climate and carbon cycle.
The new method allowed them to extract rates of change from a sediment record.
Applied to the PETM, they calculated how fast the carbon was released, how fast Earth's surface warmed, and what constrained the time scale of the onset, which was across 4,000 years.
The rate of carbon release during the PETM was much smaller than the current input of carbon to the atmosphere from human activities.

I do see that we have a discussion going on including naysayers which I expected. One thing I can tell you is that in 1969-70 I flew several times over the Mekong River Delta and it was a sea of rice paddies during the war. I just read where one quarter of it is now inundated with salt water and pretty much useless for agriculture. I expect it to be gone in the next 20 years and Vietnam better have plan B or it's starvation time.

The science has not been debunked... Some people like to say that but hardly the case. And yes the 97 percent is not all scientist, if a person says that, they are wrong.

Why don't you guys refute the OP with some actual science instead of just dismissing it outright with your meaningless words.
Show some links to some studies that refute this. Untill then you can deny it untill your face turns blue but it still wont make a difference.

I think the climate issue shows us ALL who the neocon's truly are.
Trying to control the entire planet.
Trying to control the very air,land,and water we use.
Totalitarianism, and here is some junk science to 'validate' it.

...there is no demonstrable evidence we are adversely affecting the planet. If you believe we are, then kindly present the definitive evidence...after which, you can proudly volunteer yourself to be the first to stop and go kill yourself.

humans produce co2, trees breathe in co2, the more co2 we produce the faster treas breath aka grow and release oxygen, this is scientific fact, please no one respond to me because im not looking at getting into a endless debate about this but i beg you to do your own research into the subject.
