The lead editorial in the Times today on the protests ranges across a lot of angles, but it concludes by falsely saying "no one knows" the "precise causes" of "the future pace of global warming". We do know.

Once again a reminder of what we need to do. To this we add tipping points, feed back loops, additional warming hidden by air pollution and the aspect of equity. We don’t only need new politics, we need a whole new way of thinking.
