GISS Still Below Scenario C

Even with GISS’ wildly bloated March numbers, they are still below scenario C – both for trend and latest readings.

scenario C assumes a rapid curtailment of trace gas emissions such that the net climate forcing ceases to increase after the year 2000.”

    We must have curtailed our emissions.. we deserve a pat on the back

    Good – I can breathe out now!

    Here’s the full set of scenarios from Hansen et al. 1988

    “Scenario A assumes continued exponential trace gas growth, scenario B assumes a reduced linear growth of trace gases, and scenario C assumes a rapid curtailment of trace gas emissions such that the net climate forcing ceases to increase after the year 2000.”

    There have certainly been no curtailment of the noxious gas coming out of Hansen’s mouth.

  6. Jimbo says:

    Appendix B, pg. 9361 of Hansen’s 1998 paper
    “In scenario C the CO2 growth is the same as scenarios A and B through 1985; between 1985 and 2000 the annual increment is fixed at 1.5 ppmv/yr; after 2000, CO2 ceases to increase, its abundance remaining fixed at 368 ppmv.”

    Cartoonists beware! Your livelihoods could be threatened by the Global Warming Science community. You guys have to keep regularly producing original, humorous,
    ideas for your reading audiences.

    Who needs to read the ‘Funny’ pages when all one has to do is check the headlines at Climate Depot and Real Science? I bust a gut every day reading the insane comments made by supposedly smart scientists.

    It’s working!
    Thanks Al; Thanks Patchy.
