Not just that, but it's exacerbating the extinction crisis currently being discussed at the United Nations biodiversity conference, which may result in collapse of the human habitat faster than direct climatic impacts. Here's an article on it:
Quote

“If the global community continues to see it (the biodiversity crisis) as a side event, and they continue thinking that climate change is now the thing to really listen to, by the time they wake up on biodiversity it might be too late,” said Francis Ogwal, one of the leaders of the working group charged with shaping an agreement among nations. [www.nytimes.com]

Hopefully you can get through the paywall because it's a hugely important issue.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

From Wikipedia:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an intergovernmental body of the United Nations responsible for advancing knowledge on human-induced climate change.[1][2][3][4] It was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and later endorsed by United Nations General Assembly.[5] Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, it is comprised of 195 member states.[6][7]

The IPCC provides objective and comprehensive scientific information on anthropogenic climate change, including the natural, political, and economic impacts and risks, and possible response options. It does not conduct original research nor monitor climate change, but rather undertakes a periodic, systematic review of all relevant published literature.[8][9] Thousands of scientists and other experts volunteer to review the data and compile key findings into "Assessment Reports" for policymakers and the general public;[10] this has been described as the biggest peer review process in the scientific community.[11]

The IPCC is an internationally accepted authority on climate change, and its work is widely agreed upon by leading climate scientists as well as governments.[12][11] Its reports play a key role in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC),[13][8] with the Fifth Assessment Report heavily informing the landmark Paris Agreement in 2015.[14] The IPCC shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore for contributions to the human understanding of climate change.[15]

Maybe the increased smoke from the increased fires will reflect enough of the sunlight back into space so that a new equilibrium will be reached. At least we can hope.

NOVA last night featured an Arctic expedition. They wedged an icebreaker in the ice pack to float with the ice for a year. They found clouds were trapping heat and preventing thicker ice formation. The expedition ended early because the ice melted almost two months before expected (second fastest loss of ice on record). Possible good news is diatoms that fix CO2 seem to be more plentiful then expected.

...and you have an issue with this why? Perhaps because the facts they cite disagree with republican talking points?
