It’s MAGICC, I Tell You

You couldn’t make it up. The MAGICC calculator was developed by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research under funding by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the acronym stands for the Model for the Assessment of Greenhouse-gas Induced Climate Change).

And they expect us to take them seriously?

This has not been developed by a bunch of derranged ‘deniers’; no, these are ‘proper’ scientists from the gummint.

This calculator estimates just how little warming would be averted for various reductions in CO2. A very large component missing from the argument against the climate catastrophe crowd is just how little the rise in temperature would be averted by the draconian measures that are proposed.

You can download it or play online here.

Some boffins somewhere have run the calculations for the USA with these results (truncated):

Wikipedia says New Zealand is responsible for 37 Mt CO2 and Connecticut was the closest state to that number.

James and Jacinda’s grand plan is going to bankrupt the nation, but after the gas runs out, we will warm ourselves with blankets of smug, knowing that we have stopped a temperature rise of 0.0003C by 2050 when we are “Zero Carbon”. After that it will be a runaway success of 0.0007C by 2100.

Wow! Just WOW! I am so thrilled to be alive at this time to be able to do my small bit for preventing this climate emergency.

I was going to bake a cake and light some candles to celebrate but then I realised that my cake candles would raise the global temperature by more than 0.0003C and ruin the whole thing.
