We can't stop it unless we have a way of pulling the carbon-dioxide out of the air at a rate equal to or faster then what we produce.

It's not a matter of stopping or slowing it but adapting to what's coming.

Wrong-o, batchild. The first step to getting out of a hole is to stop digging. Pretty hard to adapt to a 2℃ + average increase in global temperatures. Read the summary report of the IGPCC and you'll understand what that means, hopefully.

It's going to happen. History of the planet shows that it has before, and all we've done is just sped it up drastically. I'm sorry if what I'm saying makes me sound stupid to you.

Not stupid, but wrong. You've said your piece, now let's move on.

I know you will ban me for saying this but whatever.

If it was an average increase of +2C a year then I'm pretty sure it was either an Ice age when studies were started back in the 1970's or we are evolving at a faster rate for the heat then expected.

Wrong again. It's not 2℃ per year, it's 2℃ total from baseline. You really need to get educated about the issue before you make an ass of yourself in my gallery. See, for example: [link]
