No Mr. Lean, you are incorrect here.
Yesterday’s giant climate report
We didn’t get a giant climate report yesterday. What we got was the summary for policy makers.
We get the report on Monday. And it’s in that report that it is necessary to go looking for what they’ve done.
Personally I’m going to be fascinated to see what they’ve done (if anything) with the emissions scenarios and families. It’s my understanding (a very vague one it is true) is that the A1 family has pretty much been dropped from the process. Which is something of a pity as that was the straight line projection from the 20th cent and as we all know, straight line projections do often turn out to be true.
It’s also the projection that said that we could indeed have lots of global economic growth and if we did a bit of greening of the energy production system then we’d be fine. Dropping that family of scenarios therefore rules out that sort of solution according to the “scientific consensus”.
So I’ll be interested to read the report: but not the propaganda part of it that is being discussed this weekend.
