I took a look at to me the most alarming of the articles you shared which some Listers might overlook so I want to point it out: 

"Humans have destroyed 97% of earth's ecosystems (well, more like only 3% are fully intact) https://a.msn.com/r/2/BB1fH7DT?m=en-us&referrerID=InAppShare"

This is all about human overpopulation changing terrestrial ecosystems to accommodate more and more people. Cutting down trees for urban and agricultural development; diverting water for human consumption and agriculture and industry; changing the hydrological cycle by changes in land use; etc etc etc. This is aside from any fossil fuel related issues. If all of our energy was from renewables but we continue to increase in numbers and destroy the Earth ecosystems in our wake, the Earth is still destroyed without even one more molecule of greenhouse gas added to our atmosphere.

Slashing emissions by 2050 isn't enough.  We can bring down temperature now.

Study: One-third of plant and animal species could be gone in 50 years.
(but 2-4 times worse in tropics)
