As I’ve written before, one of the places I like to go to antagonize alarmists is the “Conversation” site. On of the topics today was, And what if nothing happens at Durban? I’m in awe of this. The second paragraph start with this…..
In 2009 in Copenhagen, parties to the UN Climate Change treaty (UNFCCC) agreed to aspire to limit global warming to below 2ºC.
Apparently, oblivious to the recent paper, http://www.princeton.edu/~nurban/pubs/lgm-cs-uvic.pdf Which stated,
“In summary, using a spatially extensive network of paleoclimate observations in combination with a climate model we find that climate sensitivities larger than 6 K are implausible, and that both the most likely value and the uncertainty range are smaller than previously thought.”
The paper set the rise in temps from a doubling of atmospheric CO2 at about 2 – 2.5° C. (I think its less than that) So, in order for the target to be successful, they don’t have to do anything.
The article also made no mention of the recent emails, nor did they bother to mention that the atmospheric CO2 hasn’t effected the temps in the last decade or so…… which pretty much makes our climate sensitivity to CO2 set at about 0°.
Here is the climatic temp response to the recent CO2 rise……
See how it correlates? LMAO! Maybe increased CO2 causes a decrease in temps…….. It certainly has correlated like that for over the last 10 years now!
I tried to point all of this out on that thread, but, sadly, they would have none of it and deleted my comments. These guys are in textbook, clinical denial. Reality has slapped them so silly, they simple refuse to look at facts.
