We Are So Screwed

Welcome to the next Earth Extinction Period...

In 2007, carbon released from burning fossil fuels and producing cement increased 2.9 percent over that released in 2006, to a total of 8.47 gigatons....This output is at the very high end of scenarios outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and could translate into a global temperature rise of more than 11 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century, according to the panel's estimates.

At least in The Day After Tomorrow, people realize in the end that humans have created an environmental catastrophe, and there is hope that the world can try to fix things. Reality is, we're all going to be like frogs sitting in the warming pot, not realizing that were about to be boiled alive.
