    I agree that Robert E. provides information that is interesting, especially the references.

    JimD, I actually found some of your contributions interesting. Perhaps you could just reduce your commenting rate instead of quitting altogether.

    In Response to Beta Blocker: Currently US' contribution to world GG is some 12% and dropping at a rate of 1.2%/yr. Assuming that the Democrats succeed at reducing the GG emissions here by 50% say within 4 years (they won't), that would be a puny 6% of world's total, a drop in the bucket, no pun, likely to be exceeded by additional GG emissions from the likes of China and India. Carbon pricing in the US ONLY is the epitome of a clumsy solution or non solution to the wicked AGW problem. True to form, it would create major disruptions in the economy with few if any benefits. Too many pundits, talking heads and politicians turned climate scientists forget that AGW is a Worldwide problem.

    . ❶①❶①❶①❶① ❶①❶①❶①❶① ❶①❶①❶①❶① ❶①❶①❶①❶① . Global warming temperature distributions =============================== Using a single number to represent global warming, like 1.5 or 2.0 degrees Celsius of global warming, makes it hard to see how bad the problem really is. Is 2.0 degrees Celsius of global warming a major change from what we have now, or is it a minor change? Using temperature anomalies to represent global warming, removes (or ignores) what is “normal” for temperatures. “Normal”, becomes a single temperature anomaly, 0.0 degrees Celsius. Does 0.0 degrees Celsius, really represent the “normal” temperature distribution on the Earth. What is the solution to this problem? The answer is to look at temperature distributions, rather than single numbers. Temperature distributions make global warming multi-dimensional, rather than a one-dimensional number. Temperature distributions show how the temperature varies with latitude, elevation, proximity to the ocean, size of landmass, and many other factors. Comparing the “normal” temperature distribution, to a “global warming” temperature distribution, makes it easier to judge the size of the problem. Are “alarmists” trying to turn a molehill into a mountain? Or are “deniers” trying to turn a mountain into a molehill? This article will show you the temperature distributions for a range of global warming “amounts”. People with weak hearts should not look at the more extreme amounts of global warming. Seeing 10.0 or 20.0 degrees Celsius of global warming on a graph, may be too much for those with a vivid imagination. This article offers a choice of global warming simulations. 1) with NO polar amplification 2) WITH polar amplification https://agree-to-disagree.com/gw-temperature-distributions-1

    Just this Judith, thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruAi4VBoBSM

    We also ended up as the only country, so far as I know, to have a carbon tax, and the only reason this appears to have work is to move large number of high energy consumers, eg aluminium, Iron industries from the UK to Europe, and the loss of a few 100 thousands of jobs. Europe don't have this tax and never will.

    Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future. [Niels Bohr] I am not brave enough. Happy New Year to Climate Etc., all authors, and the community.

    Happy New Year to Judith, family, and denizens. May your 2019 be properous and ‘interesting’.

    Hope all enjoy the <i>Melody of Life</i> ahead, this coming New Year, which may perhaps also bring a record cold 2018-19 winter and late-blooming cherry blossoms in Washington DC as well...

    Beta, if you think that a Democrat sweep is a "predictable certainty" this tells us a lot about your strange concept of uncertainty, which in turn helps explain your views on the climate change debate.

    Indeed. India's coal production is up 10% over last year and they are still dangerously short. https://energy.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/coal/indias-coal-production-has-grown-10-per-cent-to-433-mt-in-current-fiscal-so-far/67324817 People are getting electricity as fast as they can, as part of climbing out of poverty.

    I sincerely hope that in your commitment to less Blog and more writing, You manage to write in detail about exactly what will be required (by our kids, not us, assuming you Judy have any) in order to adapt to something that can only be described as global scale ecological instability ( something civilization has exactly zero experience with) if our roll of the dice commitment to vacuuming CO2 out of the air fails to unfold as we imagine. Incidentally, I have suggested similar to Cliff Mass who essentially is of a similar mind to your above stated self fulfilling prophesies, yet despite a reasonably tolerable relationship, he remains silent. Weird eh?

    I cannot even imagine what " global scale ecological instability" might mean. Will the plants become unstable? Perhaps laughing too much?

    . ❶①❶①❶①❶① ❶①❶①❶①❶① ❶①❶①❶①❶① ❶①❶①❶①❶① . Not many people know, that the real reason that the Vikings went to Greenland, was because you can't reverse a Viking longship. Once you are going in a particular direction, you can only continue in the direction that you are going. Of course, once the front of the ship touches land, then you are stranded. The only thing that you can do, is colonise the place that you have reached. And then build longships which face the other way.

    You mean like mile deep ice fields in NY City? Makes for a tough times square party But we survived and thrived. Scott

    I'm sure you can't imagine it. That really doesn't surprise me at all. Although I bet Judith Curry in all of her prodigious research in the sciences beyond her own no doubt has some imagination of it, so why don't we just wait to hear her talk about it?

    Happy New Years to all here as well. Welcome to the Great West Judy. Nevada can be lovely and no state taxes. Tahoe and Sierra mountains are spectacular. Thanks for all you do. The climate wars go on till observations can inform the models and correct the adjustments. Scott
