Climate Change Made Easy to Understand
And Considerably More Disturbing
The Carbon Ratio
The amount of carbon in the atmosphere in the form of CO2 , versus the amount of carbon in the earth in the form of fossil fuels, is referred to as the Carbon Ratio. Disrupt the Carbon Ratio sufficiently and agriculture and civilization cannot continue.
Mankind is burning fossil fuels and permanently disrupting the Carbon Ratio needed for agriculture and civilization. Once the Carbon Ratio has been distorted it can never return to its original state.
The probability of our civilization continuing in its current state has already been reduced. Furthermore, there is a decade’s long delay between the moment when carbon is released into the atmosphere, and the resulting increase in thermal energy causes the climate to change. This delay is allowing mankind to continue living the way we always have, until we can’t.
