Runaway Greenhouse Effect

Every school child knows that Venus has runaway greenhouse gas warming from CO₂ in its atmosphere, so severe it melts lead. Yet when they become adults they decide that CO₂ accumulation on earth must be harmless, despite what climatologists tell them. Why? Because, to avoid catastrophe, they would have to reduce CO₂ emissions and they don’t want to be bothered and they believe a baby-sitter god will clean it up for them.
