Climate alarmists are celebrating in the wake of the US / China emissions agreement, that if everyone does what they promised to do, global temperatures will only rise by 3 degrees by the end of the century.
According to the (Australian) ABC;
“PROJECTED GLOBAL WARMING this century will slow but will still be at a severe rate after promises by China, the United States and the European Union to limit greenhouse gas emissions, a scientific study showed on Monday.
The Climate Action Tracker, produced by an independent group of scientists, said temperatures were set to rise by about three degrees Celsius above pre-industrial times by 2100, the lowest since the tracker was set up to monitor promises made by governments in 2009.
The study, issued during United Nations talks on climate change in Lima, said the rate was 0.2 to 0.4°C less than previously projected after pledges by China, the United States and the European Union in recent weeks to rein in emissions.”
All that pain, all that misery, all that unbelievable financial cost, which, even if alarmists are right, is for the sake of a temperature change so small most people couldn’t even detect it, unless they squint really hard at their household thermometer.
