"By contrast, the WBGU study says the United States must cut emissions 100 percent by 2020--i.e., quit carbon entirely within ten years. Germany, Italy and other industrial nations must do the same by 2025 to 2030. China only has until 2035, and the world as a whole must be carbon-free by 2050."

Carbon-free? Are you sure? Wouldn’t that require us all to stop breathing? Wouldn’t all the plants die, which would leave us in a pretty precarious position with regard to the continued viability of life on this planet? The claims of “climate change” fear-mongers get more and more ridiculous, as the current data reveals the entire “climate change” religion to be a fraud.

I am eagerly awaiting the "oh, shit" moment when you realize that the model based on human emissions as a major factor is a total crap.

We've got a long way to go to get to the heat of the AD 1100-1300 era, when there was little human carbon footprint at all.

Evidence shows that atmospheric carbon dixide is a lagging, not a leading indicator.

Heating has been observed on four other solar planets, including that Mars's CO2 icecaps are melting.

These are not negligible points, nor can they be dismissed as irrational. Something is very wrong with the IPCC model, as time will tell.
