Default global warming maybe faster than biology can adapt

Carbon release to atmosphere 10 times faster than in the past, geologists find
A culture of insanity: turbocharged global warming / Klimaerwärmung mit Turbo
The rate of release of carbon into the atmosphere today is nearly 10 times as fast as during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), 55.9 million years ago, the best analog we have for current global warming, according to an international team of geologists. Rate matters and this current rapid change may not allow sufficient time for the biological environment to adjust.
So much for that idea that there were times with more CO2 in the Earths past and life survived. Even the PETM, which probably turned the oceans anoxic was only 1/10th when it comes to the speed of the change than what is happening now. The CO2 emissions nowadays are unprecedented in the past 60 million years and possibly in all of Earths history. This is uncharted terrain here. Human civilization is not a CO2 spewing volcano, it is a meteror strike causing a sixth mass extinction when it comes to its appearance on the geological timescale...

... and the world burns (literally)
Know your idols: Who said "Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher's knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.". (Solution: "Mahatma" Ghandi)

"Humans are storytellers. These stories then can become our reality. Only when we loose ourselves in the stories they have the power to control us. Our culture got lost in the wrong story, a story of death and defeat, of opression and control, of separation and competition. We need a new story!"
