I can’t help wondering though. There is the scientific “Goldilocks theory”. There are all sorts of parameters that are “just right” for life on this planet. Fossil fuels are the product of natural processes that have taken billions of years to create. We have used most of it up in a couple of hundred. It’s running out, Peak Oil is now predicted in less than two years. So, there is a limit to the amount of carbon we can pump into the atmosphere. The big question is this. Is there enough fossil fuel left to tip the balance into catastrophic Climate Change?
There have been five major extinction events in the history of this planet. Yes, Five. Life goes on, it just may not include us.
