Time will tell whether the New York Times has the best advice, namely to abandon use of fossil fuels or whether promoting smart use of fossil fuels is the best way to maintain a modern standard of living and be prepared for the real climate change scenarios mother nature is going to hand us.

From north to south, temperatures are surging as greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere and combine with effects from El Niño.

The overall warming of the planet is “well within the realm of what scientists had projected would happen” as humans continue to pump vast amounts of heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. On the whole, Earth has warmed roughly 2 degrees Fahrenheit since the 19th century and will continue to grow hotter until humans essentially halt all emissions from fossil fuels and stop deforestation.
