2. Doomsday loop

The hotter it gets, the more air conditioning will be needed which uses a ton of electricity mostly produced from fossil fuels greatly increasing the CO2 concentration requiring MORE air conditioning increasing the concentration more ...and more and more.

In addition perhaps even much worse, they have recently discovered methane bubbles in shallow arctic waters. The warmth is thawing the ice allowing the ancient methane to be released in the arctic. THis will surely increase rapidly as it gets warmer.

Methane is 18 times stronger greenhouse gas than CO2.
