    A very disturbing report from Australia. Page 5, if the math is correct, for any one of the curves spells disaster. Geometric progressions increase very rapidly after the first three or four doublings.

    http://www.countercurrents.org/glikson290511.pdf

    Had the proposed Australian reduction of 5 percent in the rate of carbon
    emissions by 2020 relative to 2000 [9] been a figure adopted world-side, global
    emissions would be reduced from ~24,000 million tons/year to 22,500 million
    tons/year, hardly causing a dent in the current trajectory above 393 ppm CO2
    toward levels at which the polar ice sheets are further destabilized (Figure 3).

    It is not clear whether deep reduction in carbon emissions will be sufficient to
    stem the amplifying feedbacks associated with greenhouse gas warming and
    ice/melt water interactions. Barring an indefinite maintenance of sulphur aerosol
    emissions, deep emission cuts need to be accompanied by atmospheric CO2
    draw-down by means of fast-track tree planting, application of biochar methods
    and chemical CO2 sequestration. As shown by the intensifying spate of extreme
    weather events around the globe (Figure 7) the alternative bears no
    contemplation.

    You're a hysterical k00k Rocks.....................

    You read posts from this guy and you'd think weather just started in the last year or two.

    But........in fact.........extreme fcukked up weather has been happening for a long long time.........some decades more extreme than others but, attributable to random planetary trends.

    Hundreds and hundreds here s0ns........the link the k00ks dont want you to know about OR are too stupid to realize weather didnt just start a few years ago.:coffee: The 1930's were particularly fcukked up. You know the 1930's............when SUV's were dominating American roads!!

    Chronology of Extreme Weather
