415 & counting

As my loyal readers know, climate change is a pretty big deal with BRT as it's a rather serious issue regarding the survivability of us as we mover further into the 21st century. With this in mind, consider the "achievement" of us rubes on reaching 415 parts per million of C02 in the atmosphere thanks to fossil fuel production and what it portends for an overcrowded planet complete with environmental degradation and resource depletion. Comforting is it not?

Just think, we haven't even discussed the accelerating release of methane in Russia and Canada, a CO2 variant  84 times more efficient in trapping heat than CO2 or the conversion of the Arctic from heat reflector to heat sink thanks to the loss of Albedo,  a key component of ice that has kept this planet cool for millennia prior to the arrival of us humans.
