How Optimistic Are You about Reductions in Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

I've added a poll at the upper righthand side of the blog asking: "What Will Be the Global Level of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2050 Compared to Today?" I'm interested in total world emissions (not per capita) and this is emissions not concentrations. Please go ahead and vote!


  1. Hi David, I saw your blog on Krugman comments. I voted lower emissions because I think a great part of the population isn't going to make it to 2050. Hunger and wars over scarce resources will kick in well before then.

  2. Hi Gail: Well I guess you are pessimistic about higher emissions being reached rather than optimistic about lower emissions :)
