Climate Modelers At Work

The picture (Climate Modelers At Work) is from a Popular Science article discussing an MIT (yeah THAT MIT) paper predicting doomsday if the Chinese and Indians don't stop improving the lives of their citizens with more and better electrical supplies using their coal resources. Well not really. It is only American policy that is in doubt. They might want to look at pdf page 26 of this article which shows that around 2020 China's CO2 emissions will be about 2 1/2 times the emissions of the USA in that year. So even if the USA cut its emissions to zero and sent all its industry to (where? China and India maybe?) it will not make a bit of difference. Other than mass starvation in the USA caused by the Great Leap Backwards. It could solve the Social Security problem though.
