What's going to happen? Likely nothing since there have been way higher levels of CO2 in the past.
So again, I find nothing to panic about.

You people can panic all you want, I find it highly entertaining.
Sure buddy...

Rest assured, we only inject 50 times as much carbon as what caused the mass extinction 56 million years ago.
Highly entertaining. I wonder what else entertains you.

Only cherry pick the last 20,000 years of CO2 levels. CO2 levels have been much higher in the padt and the world didn't end.

The world didn't end, but many species did. No ice at all anywhere on the planet.

You make claims without reference whatsoever, and if I try to fact check them and find they don't prove your point but rather show that a much slower insertion of carbon can cause 200.000 years of iceless heating that is 'cherry picking'?

I don't like the way you discuss.
But it was useful, as it forced me to check out the PETM event.
Now I know carbon emission is even more dangerous than I feared.

Please give examples.

The world ended for the dinosaurs, but it is cool, I would hate to run over a brontosaurus, and um... what would power my car?

Actually... wouldn't we have greater petroleum reserves as more dinosaurs lived and died in the subsequent millions of years?

But if I had to pick the side that was less wrong, I'd pick the one that actually continuously refines their models to take everything into account.

Because they do, whether you believe they do or not.

Alsox2, in relation to that, it is likely more oil deposits exist than we have ever used. Or ever will use. Because, y'know, we can't afford to dig it all up due to EROI concerns.

Science is based on independently reproducible results.

Scientific laws display 100% accuracy, that's why it's a law, it always works, 100% of the time and there is no counter argument that isn't proved wrong 100% of the time.
If the science only works 97% or 99% of the time, or there is counter arguments that can not be absolutely disproven all of the time then the little bit of science in question is still a theory.
But I see this a lot, global warming believers and bible thumpers not grasping how basic science works or is applied.
Scientific laws are the only settled science, but even they can be challenged.

John Tyndall showed this way back in 1859:

https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/Tyndall/

The US Air Force did research at Hanscom (in the 1950's?) on greenhouse gases, when they worked on heat seeking missiles.

This is basic chemistry and spectroscopy. It is used in astrophysics, and many other areas of scientific study.
