As we discovered in "Futility, Part 1", slashing CO2 emissions will not cause global temperatures to decrease. As long as there are human CO2 emissions, the IPCC "gold-standard" science claims global temperatures will increase. But certainly a 83% cut in major industrialized nation's CO2 emissions by 2050 will have a major beneficial impact on global temperatures, right? (click on image to enlarge)
If each major industrialized country kept their CO2 emissions stable for the next 90 years, the impact on global temps would be 0.54°C increase (the black line on the chart). If these same nations cut their CO2 emissions by 83% by 2050, global temperatures would increase by 0.20°C. The difference between the black and red lines after 90 years (at year 2100) is all of 34/100's of a degree. This type of impact represents almost nothing when compared to the predicted temperatures from IPCC scientist climate models, as depicted by the dashed line at the top of the chart.
Literally, a benefit that is practically unmeasurable in terms of temperature but would require trillions of dollars to be spent to carry out. An economic and environmental policy of insanity, favored by obviously insane government officials.
So, you may wonder which countries were included for this analysis. They were: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States. By the way, these countries, in total, have experienced flat CO2 emission growth over the five years ending 2008 (2009 CO2 emissions data not available yet). What about other countries and their impact? Well, stay tuned for "Futility, Part 3."
