    We will continue, every year, to increase the GHGs we emit. Until a mega catastrophe that is climate related kills 100,000 or more. But of course, the reductions we make then will not affect the consequences that we will face.

    Yes, Steve, you will have 'won'.

    How much is a gigaton compared to the total weight of Earth's atmosphere?

    Sure. 30 Gigatons cause "an order of magnitude increase" but you can never show us this in a lab

    And yet, global temperatures have been flat, or slightly lowering over the past decade and a half. Square that with the hypothesis of AGW.
