Cumulative greenhouse gas emissions commit Earth to a warmer climate and future species extinctions. We must start removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to prevent catastrophe. Could Earth’s history provide a solution to the urgent threat of climate change? Watch the video to find out more, then read the paper:
