Coming IPCC scare: CO2 tipping point is 2030

While climate alarmists are full of it now, the atmosphere has another 20 years, they say.

Reuters reports,

“New research, to be published in the journal Climatic Change in November, suggests humankind may have to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere on a vast scale if emissions keep rising after 2020. The series of articles provide scenarios which will form the basis of the next report by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2013 and 2014. At present emissions levels, in less than 20 years the sky would effectively be full, meaning every extra tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted would have to be removed to stay within safer climate limits, one lead author says.”

So the giant sucking sound we hear in 2030 won’t be NAFTA. It’ll be the CO2 extraction industry.

  1. A ‘scenario’ is a prehistoric ‘computer simulation.’ The ‘computer’ involved is the writers’ imagination. It is non-quantitative, non-digital, non-verifiable.
    It isn’t even ‘analog.’ It is simply eschatological – and if you prefer, the ‘e’ is silent…

  2. I love it! The IPCC will provide “scenarios” which will provide the basis for their report… not factual studies that have been peer reviewed by science?

  3. I think 2030 was a wise choice. You don’t want the tipping point too far out. People will lose interest. Better if it is within most of our lifetimes, but not too close because this could prove embarrassing when the tipping action is a no show. 2030, yup, works for me.
