State of the Climate

To sum it up: Nice.

Warmer than the little ice-age, cooler than the climate optimum. No trends in severe weather and no hint of a cooling trend (which is the most concerning scenario that anyone can contemplate).

Best of all, whatever we do to CO2 – even if the climate cults worst ideas about feedbacks were true, there is absolutely no prospect of us seeing temperatures warmer than any previous climate optimum, because there is clearly a hard stop that prevents warming … so any warming would be limited and entirely beneficial.

But if I had to put it on a scale from 0 to 10 my “concern”. I would say 1/10 … because although we currently do not have any evidence to suggest it is happening, there is theĀ  possibility that we may see a global civilisation alternating cooling trend develop.
