Global temperatures are on a path to rise by an average of 6C by the end of the century as CO2 emissions increase and the Earth's natural ability to absorb the gas declines, according to a major new study.

Ah...hello - after the hackers told us what we already knew was the truth, we’re NOt buying this BS anymore guys ;-)
is this from the onion?
And then again they might not.
They’re just not going to stop with this BS, are they?
Looks like the Guardian got its instructions from Phil Jones and Michael Mann......
Which set of faked data are they using for this one?
All your weather balloons are belong to us.
Nope, from the same gang that had their emails hacked...Nothing like holding this survey until right before Copenhagen. I really think the ‘hacker’ is actually an insider who saw the utter corruption of these ‘scientists’ and couldn’t take it any more. This is yet another example of releasing ‘studies’ right when they are supposed to have the maximum POLITICAL impact
“The global trends we are on with CO2 emissions from fossil fuels suggest that we’re heading towards 6C of global warming,” said Corinne Le Quéré of the University of East Anglia who led the study with colleagues at the British Antarctic Survey.
Global thermonuclear war?
There will be cleaner technology, these cretins just want us to eat weeds and die.
LOL. It appears anyone posting any agreement has had their posts removed by the moderator. From the nice libs who always welcome debate (but only when it agrees with them). Their bubble is bursting, and they don’t know it.
Unfortunately another recent study just proved that the earth’s ability to absorb C02 is just as strong as it was in 1850. More hoo-hockey for the idealogues to suck up.
Additionally considering it takes the reduction of 1 trillion tons of CO2 to offset 1 degree of temperature change...let’s see the math says...
The world produces 30 billion tons of CO2 a year. So to reduce 1 trillion tons of CO2 using today’s numbers that means the world must stop ALL production of CO2 for the next 33 years. No cars, no planes, no boats, no trains, no electricity, NO NOTHING.
Yeah just that little calculation alone shows the entire thing is just a bunch of horse hockey.
I’ll say one thing for these losers, they sure do stick by their scam and hoax. I guess they REALLY need the bucks. They just won’t give it up.
So we’re back to warming again now, Huh.
Send me an email.
Pardon, agreement = disagreement
Just let us know right before the tsunami gets here so we can move our Hummers and SUV’s up the driveway.
Never say die, eh?
In light of the hacked evidence of fraud, they have to beat the drum louder, to drown out lynch mob forming Stage Right.
Did you mean disagreement?
Uhh.... WHAT PATH??? The same set of “data” shows that temps have been DECREASING for a DECADE...
The truth has come out, now they are making their final blitz before Dopenhagen.
And you know what? It was -37 below two nights ago in my little corner of the world, and I can’t wait. Bring it on. Two years ago we had a 70-plus day growing season; this last summer it was almost as grim. I’m looking forward to a little apple orchard and some grape vines and some plums and cherries and a pumpkin patch, as well as a considerable reduction in the heating bill and not having to plug in the car every night for six months just to get it started.
If there really is global warming, it’ll be the best thing that has happened along the banks of the Yukon River in many millions of years. Has anyone really considered that a warm Earth is a productive and growing Earth, or warmer climates means less money to heat homes?
Whadda buncha morons.
Love all the “this comment has been removed by the moderator”. LOL! Hilarious! They’ve been ‘had’ and they KNOW it!
“is this from the onion?”
No, from the Guardian, known in the UK as fishwrap.
It is the UK version of the New York Slimes.
The Marxist AGW crowd is going ape because they have been exposed.
Look for them to get really shrill over the next few days.
Good one. :^) (Don’t forget to protect them from the ozone hole while your at it.)
They have to flood the market with their message so that no one will actually read about the emails.
A rise of 6° C is a rise of 10.8° F, not 42.8!
hah, all these papers were timed to come out now to try and drive the hysteria for the conference in Copenhagen, and train went off the track :-)
As Imhofe said to Boxer, “We won, you lost, get a life.”
They have to start the propaganda again I personally wish they would rise we had the coldest summer in a hundred years.
I’ll be dead by the end of the century anyway. Guess I don’t have to care.
6C - 0C = 6C ... translated to F is then
42.8F - 32F = 10.8F
For what its worth that is a little over 90 years from now.
We’ll all be gone by then and there will be no one around to answer for the guess,
While we are in this frame of mind the world, by the end of the century, will populated by beings with four heads, six legs and eight arms and still paying off o-bow-mans debt.
You made an error in your title. 6°C is 10.8°F when you’re comparing temperatures. The starting point for both scales is different.
6C? last i heard from those loonies was 3C.
i guess they decided to double down since they have been exposed
Yep, these stories were probably in a tickler file waiting for the collossal conclave in Copenhagen.
The timing of this story indicates one thing,
The author of it should be fired.
Good one! LOL
At least most of them didn't know that ~ but one of them did ~ 'cause he released it.
Here's a thought. Researchers recently found that blue-green algae are actually 5% more efficient than previously thought. They constitute a serious carbon sink taking CO2 and turning it into more stable carbon compounds and releasing oxygen. They'd previously been credited with releasing half our atmospheres oxygen, but now their contribution has been re-estimated.
There's a lower bound for the CO2 content of the atmosphere when it comes to blue-green algae (aka cyanobacter) ~ something like 200 ppm or they just die off. I don't believe there's an upper bound, but as long as they get all the nutrients they need, and plenty of space to spread in the ocean surface, they should expand relative to any increase in the amount of CO2 and suck it in like the hungry little beggars they really are.
Given enough sunlight, enough cyanobacteria, enough infective viruses (which presently infect 10% of the cyanobacteria and thereby boost aggregate production of oxygen considerably), they should maintain a balance.
Currently the CO2 content of our atmosphere is being measured by satellite ~ haven't seen any reports on what it is, but I bet it's lower than what the AWG grant masters have been telling us. The cyanobacter would want it that way.
“Theyre just not going to stop with this BS, are they?”
Nope. Too much money and power involved.
Gee, I trend out from the last ten years of global cooling and my data shows the Earth 6C cooler at the end of the century.
