"Since 1750, humans have disrupted Earth's carbon cycle more severely
than have some of the most cataclysmic asteroid impacts in history —
and, new research suggests, the long-term effects on our planet (see:
out-of-control global warming, ocean acidification, mass extinction)
could be much the same.
This striking finding comes from a suite of papers published today (Oct.
1) in the journal Elements, authored by several teams of researchers
from the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) — a global collective of more
than 1,000 scientists studying the movement of all Earth's carbon from
the core of the planet to the edge of space."
