Climate Change History

250 million years ago, the earth warmed to the point that frozen deposits of methane on the ocean floor melted and released their gas into the atmosphere. Methane is 25 times as potent greenhouse gas as CO₂. The greenhouse gas warming melted even more methane in a runaway greenhouse gas effect. Nearly all life on earth was wiped out except for pink algae. The melting point of methane has not changed since then and we have warmed the earth to the same tipping point. Why humans refuse to be concerned baffles me. A species so careless about its survival and so blindly focused on profit, deserves to go extinct.
