But the only difference between Joe Romm and Joe Nocera is time. Both are still wrong. Climate change is irreversible on any scale.
Romm writes at ClimateProgress:
The CMO (Chief Misinformation Officer) of the climate ignorati, Joe Nocera, has a new piece, “A Real Carbon Solution.” The biggest of its many errors comes in this line:
A reduction of carbon emissions from Chinese power plants would do far more to help reverse climate change than — dare I say it? — blocking the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Memo to Nocera: As a NOAA-led paper explained 4 years ago, climate change is “largely irreversible for 1000 years.”
Memo to Joe Romm: climate change is irreversible.
