Rapid global warming caused the largest extinction event in the Earth’s history, which wiped out the vast majority of marine and terrestrial animals on the planet, scientists have found.

The mass extinction, known as the “great dying”, occurred around 252m years ago and marked the end of the Permian geologic period. The study of sediments and fossilized creatures show the event was the single greatest calamity ever to befall life on Earth, eclipsing even the extinction of the dinosaurs 65m years ago.
=======================================
Out of control global warming has been blamed for the mass extinction event at the end of the Permian era.

'Up to 96% of all marine species perished while more than two-thirds of terrestrial species disappeared. The cataclysm was so severe it wiped out most of the planet’s trees, insects, plants, lizards and even microbes.'

The die-off of the coral reefs in Australia's Great Barrier Reef should serve as a warning that we might be headed toward the same fate.

The alt right is racist scum and really has nothing to do with conservatives or republicans. You're apologizing for the alt right by pretending it's an extension of a legitimate party.

There's no such thing as the alt left. You know that. You employ the term to support the alt right.

an increase in CO2 levels by 2000 ppm

Given that we have caused a 120ppm increase and this, 2000ppm increase, was probably another symptom of the vast volcanic activity that created the Siberian Traps which simply heated the earth a lot as well as pumping out all manner of poison leveling the finger of panic at our activity is a long stretch.

We don't know enough about climate dynamics to be aware of us approaching a tipping point beyond which the global temperature will increase to dangerous levels.

Why not support the alt right openly instead of indirectly pretending it's an extension of the right?
