A lot of that money has gone into things like solar and wind power which, proponents say, will reduce emissions over time by generating electricity without burning fossil fuels. But what about the CO2 which has already been emitted? While climate scientists have been steadily revising temperature sensitivity estimates downward, there is a terrific political momentum behind the idea that CO2 and temperature are linked and that, despite a lack of scientific evidence, that link causes everything from sea level rise to rain “events”. read more
