It's on the cards some kind of panic reaction will take place in the next decade. That could mean a big coal shutdown with skyrocketing power prices or any one of several forms of geoengineering. The government of the day will be vilified whatever they do. In retrospect it would have been easier to get a steady emissions reduction starting a decade ago. That way we can say adverse weather at say 350 ppm CO2 is 'natural'.

I have to agree the IPCC have undermined their credibility. Without buying into the accuracy of their climate predictions their practical advice is naive and daft. For example they want a hydrogen economy which has so far gone nowhere in 20 years of effort. They should stick to their knitting, that is climate prediction, and leave the practicalities to others.

A sort of Ode to the religion of climate change and the great God of global warming: (when will this religion be outlawed)?

We just don`t know..........
There is little doubt that a panic reaction will be the worst result. On the other hand we do ourselves few favours by continually adding pollutants to the atmosphere and destroying our Environment, our one and only life support system.

"From 1940 to almost 1980 the global temperature went down."
No from mid 1930s to 1950 there was abnormal heating , then back to trend which is consistently up since 1900.

Co2 is at the highest in the past 1/2 million years breaching the normal cycling pattern.

any ice left at the artic? Oh dear another completely failed Flannery prophecy. No need for him to pay back the Australian tax payer.
