“President Obama and other leaders backed historic new targets for tackling global warming last night in an agreement designed to pave the way for a world deal in the autumn.
For the first time, America and the other seven richest economies agreed to the goal of keeping the world’s average temperature from rising more than 2C (3.6F).”
What amazing IGNORANCE/ARROGANCE!
Peer reviewed science indicates that if the entire world does NOTHING over the next 100 years to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the total man made warming effect will be about 0.4C.
The same science indicates that 100 years from now -- if the entire world does NOTHING, the total sum of ALL man made warming -- historical AND future -- will be 1.1C. Click here for the post which directly cites that science.
So, in one sense, these scumbag politicians have set a particularly easy goal for themselves. But, what about natural forces?
Well, IF temperatures were to rise more than 2C, that would exceed the considerably warmer temperatures reached about 8,000 years ago. So, to a degree, the scumbags have hedged their bets pretty well as relates to natural forces.
But, considering that the previous interglacial warming cycle (The Eemian) produced temperatures about 3C higher than current mean temperatures, Mother Nature could yet throw the arrogant scumbags a curve ball.
