It had better get dramatically warm soon.

  1. You do realise that Schneider was talking about a spike over a period of 8-9 years. And he wrote that e-mail in 2009. Come back in a few more years before stating “It had better get dramatically warm soon”

    And David Howard aren’t you a supporter of depopulation…”Reduce the bloody population, there’s no room for 70 million or more here, no jobs or infrastructure for even more.”

  2. Schneider’s been dead for a while, he was a post-normal science activist trying to change the world to a managed economy with planned depopulation. Therefore whatever he says is driven by those wishes and nothing else.
