Thought of the Day

Doubling the present CO2 concentration only results in ∆T < 0.24 K. At the present rate of CO2 concentration increase of 1.2% per year, it will take almost two hundred years to reach ten times the present concentration yielding ∆T < 0.80 K.

Helpful chart below.

In other words, CO2 is not very powerful a greenhouse gas, and saturation has already taken place, and in two hundred years of increasing CO2, the temperature rise from man made CO2 won't even be a full degree C.

Can we stop running for the hills shouting "We're doomed!" now?
