Great article with a big hole in it. Faster than expected is also caused because the second leg of what causes climate change is largely ignored in the IPCC models. Greenhouse gasses heat up the planet, but they are not the only driver of climate change. While carbon gets all the attention, there is another huge factor which is largely overlooked. It is water in its movements and changes of state (ice, liquid water and vapor) as it interacts with plant life and the atmosphere, driven by photosynthesis, which converts sunlight into sugars combining water and CO2. This interaction has enormous stabilizing and cooling effects. A lot of the weather extremes we see how have a much larger ''water'' than ''carbon'' finger print on them. Once we understand the full force of plants and the water cycle, we can actually confront the climate crisis with a whole new set of measures. Plants, healthy soils and healthy ecosystems stabilize weather, the climate and bring cooling. We can leverage these qualities to fight the climate crisis. If the damage to the biosphere is reversed, the planet will regain its capacity to regulate its own temperature. Climate scientists must apologize and say, sorry, we did not see the big picture, that is why we did not see this coming.
