Drew Jones' TED Talk

Cool graphics (via Climate Progress) showing the relation between various emissions scenarios and atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases:

The results of my poll said that emissions would be the same in 2050 as today. You can see the results of continuing that until 2100 at around 9:20 in the video - 600ppm in 2100. Certainly better than supposed business as usual but still way too high. But I think that even if emissions in 2050 were similar to today they would come down strongly in the second half of the 21st century.
