We May Not Have to Worry about Social Security

If I may distill the essence of this article--
If the global temperature increases about 1.2 degrees from its present level, about 10 years or so, positive feedback will cause a further rise of an additional 3 degrees very quickly. This rise of 5 degrees should be enough to cause large amounts of the icy methane slurry at the bottom of the oceans to melt. This will add enough additional greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere to ratchet up an additional five degrees, while simultaneously killing most of the oxygen using life in the oceans.

The last time this happened, 95% of the life on the planet Died.

Have a Nice Day!
