The biggest threat to humanity right now is the rising carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. If this continues it will lead to all of these doomsday scenarios:
- Runaway Global Warming
- Antarctica collapse
- Rainforest Collapse
- Mass Extinction
- Ocean Acidification
- Gulf Stream Collapse
It will be catastrophe on top of catastrophe, essentially ruining the planet. Therefore this article is a wake up call:
The amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth’s atmosphere continues to rise, say scientists. On June 4, 2020, scientists from NOAA and Scripps Institution of Oceanography announced that atmospheric CO2 measured at Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii reached a seasonal peak of 417.1 parts per million for 2020 in May, the highest monthly reading ever recorded.
400 parts per million was once considered to be a “red line”. We are now well above that, and the consequences are dire unless humanity changes course:
Progress in emissions reductions is not visible in the CO2 record. We continue to commit our planet – for centuries or longer – to more global heating, sea level rise, and extreme weather events every year. If humans were to suddenly stop emitting CO2, it would take thousands of years for our CO2 emissions so far to be absorbed into the deep ocean and atmospheric CO2 to return to pre-industrial levels.
This is why humanity needs a war-level of effort to eliminate fossil fuels and then start pulling carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. This needs to happen immediately, and is within our power.
“The Doomsday Book” by Marshall Brain lays out this scenario in amazing detail and offers solutions to prevent this doomsday scenario from unfolding. You can pre-order the book today on the pre-order page.
