1 Year from Today, We’ll Have Blown the World’s Entire Carbon Budget 0117 - Actually, we blew thru it about 1970.  The article’s view of the carbon budget, and future warming, is based on neglecting non-GHG feedbacks and effects.  Most notable are albedo (reflectivity) changes from less sulfur, sea ice, snow, clouds, and land ice.  Also notable are (1) feedbacks from warming from those abedo changes increasing atmospheric levels of H2O, the #1 greenhouse gas, and (2) delayed surface warming as the deep ocean warms over centuries, until equilibrium is re-establlished with the surface and top of the atmosphere.  The pre-civilization climate record is clear that these “long-term” effects are large, larger than (about 2 x) the short-term effects of human greenhouse gases alone.
