1 Trillion tons CO2 exhaust: Only 30 years left to irreversible climate change
Where Allen’s team found that adding 480 billion tons of carbon from here on out would push the risk of 2 degrees of warming to over 50 percent, Meinshausen’s team found even more alarming results. The German team estimates that 310 billion tons is all that would be needed. Without policy changes, that means humans would hit dangerous warming levels in 20 years (Meinshausen) to 40 years (Allen) .
Obviously, we did it, but we will not be hit. !
What more, the fact that 48% of Americans trust their religious leaders to provide reliable global warming information !
God forgive them, they simply don't know.
