Humanity has become a geological force capable of suppressing the beginning of the next ice age....The bottom line is that we are basically skipping a whole glacial cycle, which is unprecedented.

Whilst trying to predict what might happen in thousands of years, I think I'm more concerned with the "here and now" and the next generation or two. . .

LEAVE ALL FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.
NO MORE drilling, coal mining, FRACKING,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
==========
Leave the OIL IN THE SOIL
Leave the Coal in the Hole
Leave the TAR SANDS IN THE LAND.
Eliminate ALL use and extraction of Dirty Fossil Fuels for Energy, NOW! ASAP

Darren I agree with those concerns, but I think it is important to note the point that this article makes, which is to show just how extensively human activity is able to affect the environment. Some people still doubt that. We really know relatively little about those systems that are involved.

Yes, I agree with you. However, I think the projections alluded to, are moot unless humankind starts putting in serious measures NOW to stem destructive change.

Hopefully humans will figure things out before then.

and--all governments need to draw-up illegalities and make quick plans to turn the bus around. Ty Judy.
