Guy McPherson has thrown in the towel

…we’ve triggered five positive-feedback events, any one of which leads to near-term human extinction. Each of the five has been reported in the refereed journal literature, as a quick search will reveal: reduction of Arctic sea ice, rapid decomposition of boreal peat, release of Siberian methane, release of ocean methane hydrates, and the drought in the Amazon basin.

I suggested we look into the SurvivaBall:

“We’ve done all we could to show these people what sucked about letting greed run our future, but instead of freaking out, they just took our business cards.”
