Speculative coal bubble must be popped

The 400 parts per million CO2 threshold has been crossed, a timely reminder that our fossil fuel addiction rests on a speculative bubble of climate denial, indifference or dreaming.

Carbon. It’s a good thing. It’s in all life. It makes up almost a fifth of our bodyweight. Carbon dioxide, one of its nearly 10 million compounds, is also a good thing. Plants and algae convert it into the oxygen we breathe. Without the heat trapping qualities of CO2 in the atmosphere, Earth would be a much, much colder world.

But like alcohol and chocolate you can have too much of a good thing.
