Not many people seem to realize it, but there's about a 30 year lag time between when you start overloading the atmosphere with CO2 and when you finally start to see its detrimental effects. That means that the MMCC (man-made climate change) we're seeing today is from the atmospheric CO2 overload we created in the 1980's.

Even if you stopped all worldwide CO2 emissions immediately at this moment, you wouldn't see the final effects from today's emissions until around 2045.

So what's worse: the CO2 lag time, or the time it's taking us to wrap our brains around this man-made problem?
