Time to go to scientists not swamped by our own pre-occupations.
Although Tim Blair didn’t leave a link I picked it up from his place. It seems the lucky (deserving) fellow got to hang out with Mark Steyn.
Anyhow I put his quote in the google and came up with this fellow.
He thinks that cooling will run from about 2012-2015 and reach a peak at around 2055-2066.
He then thinks there will be two centuries of strong warming starting from the 22nd century.
Now since folks reckon its about a 40-60 year delay to the release of CO2 and it working through the system to change the climate (IF THIS WERE ALL TRUE) it would give us a good policy guide.
We would want a VERY STRONG expansion of Coal use all the way clear past 2066. And only think about a carbon-tax after that.
Heaps and heaps of time to wean off Oil.
