The Importance of Hydrogen: Why Humans are Doomed
This somewhat long and technical article (pdf document, click on "articles" on the main page and then "Hydrogen: Life's Maker and Breaker") by Reg Morrison demonstrates in great detail the geneticists argument as to why the human species has no future, well, longterm anyway. Your reward for wading through some of the more difficult passages is a greater understanding of why carbon really doesn't matter in the scheme of things, hydrogen is vital and how the release of methane "burps" will really trash the planet as we know it. It'll also scare you out of your socks.
