19. We're currently changing the climate faster than at any point in the past 65 million years

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/todays-climate-change-proves-much-faster-than-changes-in-past-65-million-years/

Climate change is occurring 10 to 100 times faster than in the past and ecosystems will find it hard to adjust


Kind of sobering that humans are doing as much damage today as the combined forces of extreme volcanism and a 10-km-wide asteroid did 65 million years ago.
