    This ain't a "new study". It's commentary by activists about PAST studies of "trigger temperatures" and runaway feedbacks that had little proof to them. It's the "exaggerated" portion of GW science.

    The theory is we live on such a junker of a planet that it will DESTROY itself with a 2DegC temperature anomaly. There's no real indications that this is the case from the historical records.

    The MAIN tenets of GW are pretty clear and responsibly drawn up. But this whole mess is a LOT to be skeptical about.

    These so called scientists seems unaware that we live in an "ice House" that has existed for the last few MILLION years.. The current landmasses and orbital tilt make it currently impossible for a hot house condition to arise.

    That's one theory. You have no way to prove it and there are theories that contend otherwise. Venus and Mars both provide examples of planets achieving runaway condition significantly and permanently altering their environments. The Gaia hypothesis is just that, a hypothesis: it is not well evidenced and, as a result, is not widely accepted. The rate at which CO2 emissions have raised the Earth's temperature and acidified the oceans has not been seen since the Chicxulub Impact, 66 million years ago. You don't know what the fuck it will and will not do to this planet.

    Just don't leave that roll of refrigerator biscuits in there. It could take your head off in this heat.

    So -- how much hotter is your car because of the 1degree of GW in your lifetime? :rolleyes:
