It's straightforward to calculate the volume of the troposphere,resolved into a sphere,at standard temp and pressure,then compare that to the volume of Earth.
When you compare the two together it'll blow your mind when you actually see how tiny our atmosphere is.
And Venus gives us a little insight into what carbon dioxide can do to a planets atmosphere.844-degees F,day and night,with 200-mph winds.Sweet!
...and being roughly 25.8 million miles closer to Sol counts, too.

Yup, but Venus is even hotter than Mercury, which is much closer to the Sun.
Without 'Venal' warming Venus might be inhabitable in its polar areas. It would have rainfall.

Yellowstone super volcano explosion it's more probable to occor, since it happens each a given million years, and we are in the era to a new explosion. Huge meteor crash happens less often.

And when genetic engenering biology became advanced and affordable for compact labs at home, terrorists will try to creat a super germ (bacteria or virus) to destroy humanity.

It's a rock with a moist breath on it. But there are oceans under our feet.

Facebook is already doing that.

Exactly what I've been saying. Deliberate harm is a much greater threat to humanity than accidental. This isn't to say that that non-deliberate threats should be ignored, only that our attention should be in proportion to the level of threat (severity and likelihood).

The huge menance to human species is the human species.

Human brain it's stupid. It evolved to learn how design a reactor, a space ship, but most just to the same monkey thing, fight for power and domain in irrational way, or by sick faiths that leads to ignorance.
I conclude human brain are deeply splitted between science, math, mecanic, chemical logic of certains sciences, and civilized knowledge or will it's in a diferent folder.

I see no future to humanity before genetic engenering try to fix it.

It just boggles my mind how people worry so much about how man's actions might effect the climate when the earth is 50 years over due for an event that in less than 14 hours will cause total destruction of modern society.
That's why to me man made global warming is no more than a distraction from the real issues at hand.

People only use half their brain, the four terrestrial circuits. Epigenetics is evolution without changes in DNA. The four extra-terrestrial circuits can be previewed via the appropriate plant- or fungal-based substances.

Inevitable catastrophe is no reason to neglect the less important things that you can affect now.

We're all going to die within our lifetimes, but that's not a compelling reason to let our bodies fall apart in the meantime.

Of course this is true, but I don't think most people are ready to accept this nearly inevitable reality. The only other alternative is to go back to relying heavily on natural selection to promote fit genes. We'll all have heart defects, poor vision, diabetes, etc, etc in the future if we rely on technology only to cope with these problems rather than avoid having them in the first place (not talking about eugenics, but specific genetic selection). Of course this will raise many more problems, but the imperative to have a healthy population is greater than the peril of misusing technology.

Taking this idea further, we will need to genetically solve the problem of cruel and destructive mindsets before technology progresses to the point that an individual can exact complete annihilation (and preferably before then).
