Human Carbon Dioxide Emissions could match with PETM in the next 140 Years

According to a recent study, the carbon levels on Earth may reach the levels observed during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) in fewer than 5 generations. PETM is a global warming event that took place around 56 million years ago and is the last major greenhouse event known to humanity. Researchers found that humans are…
