12. bullshit. Do the math people. THis is crock. there are 400 quadrillion btu
there are 400 quadrillion btus a year put into the earth system by humans. The sun puts in 6million quadrillion btus a year.

THat is

400 vs 6,000,000

ALL the co2 and methane emitted by all the humans and all their cows ever, don't make up one percent of what is released from arctic (used to be) perma-frost a year. And over 1/3 of all potential CO2 yet remains in the arctic perma frost waiting to be released by heat. FROM THE FRIGGING SUN!

and it will take all humans now alive over 400 years to create enough CO2 to equal one per cent of the amount in the perma frost.

and there is yet more good news. THe methane fields of the deep north pacific ocean hold the rest of the readily available CO2 potential in the form of frozen methane slush. Which is also heat sensitive.

AND the last time that there was this much CO2 in the air, it was 55 million years ago, AND there was an extinction going on, AND there was no, repeat, no available ice on the planet. AND the evidence is that when the last of that previous ice-age ice gave way, it did so in the course of less than 7 days.

Ok, not global warming due to cars, oil , or squat done or not done by humans. Yes, we are suffering through catastrophic global climate change, but humans ain't causing it.

You would think that humans would think and do math now and again.
