Just one problem with that!

‘The world’s carbon emissions increased in 2010 by a record amount, in spite of many of the world’s economies being in recession…’

Further more 2010 has also seen sharp spike in atmospheric methane, which originates mainly from Siberian and other arctic permafrost beginning to de-frost, and that is a killer.

If this trend continues in 2011 then the inescapable conclusion will have to be that we are too late to save the planet from catastrophic global 6C plus warming through a series of self reinforcing positive feedbacks starting with melting ice being replaced by heat absorbent dark surfaces and now also by melting permafrost releasing methane.

In that case it will be necessary to re-evaluate our approach to Global Warming, since that becomes unstoppable. We shall have to redirect our meagre efforts to adaptation rather than attempting to restrict CO2 emissions.

To be clear, adaptation includes over time vacating all areas 20m or less above current sea levels, abandoning the majority of the current surface area of the planet as it turns to desert and instead inhabiting sufficiently high ares of Siberia, Northern Canada and Antarctica.

No amount of localisation will stop the loss of coastal areas to the sea and much of Africa, America, Asia and Southern Europe to the heat.
