5. Uh, yeah - when YOY atmospheric carbon increases hit 6% - well beyond worst-case projections . . .
. . . it's pretty much out of our hands at this point anyway, given the longevity of atmospheric CO2 combined with positive feedbacks.

But by all means, let's continue to spend lots of money on "clean coal" TV commercials to maintain America's lead in that key industrial sector, Warm And Fuzzy Bullshit.
