The Case for CO2 Pessimism

A while back Ezra Klein was interviewing Ta-Nehisi Coates. Coates wrote an article in the Atlantic title: The Case For Reparations (I highly recommend reading the Atlantic article). Most of the interview was about Coates' Atlantic article. But part way through the interview, Coates asked Klein "How are we going to deal with climate change?"

Below is Klein's answer clipped from the full interview. Klein followed up with an article: 7 reasons America will fail at global climate change
One note I will add is that while CO2 inputs into the atmosphere and the associated warming forcing associated with CO2 is well recognized, the CO2 inputs into the ocean should be even more of a concern.
