James Hansen video: Throwing dice for climate prediction

From the Scandinavian website KlimatHot Gameover blog, November 12, 2008

I’m moving to Beijing!

From: http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/originals/State_initiatives.pdf

“During the past 5 years, global emissions of CO2 from human activity have
increased at an average rate of 3.5%/yr, with China alone contributing nearly
2/3rds of the new emissions (Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency,
2008). This means that the annual increase of global CO2 emissions is several
times greater than the total emissions from most of the individual 50 states.”

“Putting an even finer point on it, were the entire U.S. to close down its economy
completely and revert to the Stone Age, without even the ability to light fires, the
growth in emissions from China alone would replace its entire emissions in a
little less than a decade. In this context, mere emissions restrictions enacted by
any locality, state, or multi-state region would be extravagantly pointless.”

“In fact, even if the entirety of the EU-27 nations were to completely and forever
cease all CO2 emissions from this day forward, it would have an insignificant
impact on the course of the world’s future climate (Table 2). In 50 years, the
global temperature “savings” produced by an immediate cessation of all EU-27
CO2 emissions is estimated to be less than one-tenth of a degree Celsius, and
increasing to just a bit more than a tenth of a degree by centuries end. The
impacts of future sea level would be equally miniscule.”
