The Most Important Climate Change Chart



Paul Klugman has managed to create a chart that best captures the challenges in trying to contain and reduce carbon dioxcide.

The original is here.

He gives some comment in another post:

So the headline today says that the United States, under pressure, has agreed to — well, not to actually do anything about climate change, but to talk about doing something about climate change.

Meanwhile, doom marches on. I was recently looking at these data on carbon dioxide emissions from the Energy Information Administration[.]

. . .

I picked 1997 because that’s the year of the Kyoto Protocol. America — despite full knowledge of the risks to the climate — just keeps pouring ever more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Future generations will not forgive us. And China’s economic success is an environmental disaster.
I just thought you should know.


That comment is here.
