|Resource title||Climate forcing growth rates: doubling down on our Faustian bargain|
|Author(s)||James Hansen, Pushker Kharecha, Makiko Sato|
|Publication/ source||Environmental Research Letters, vol.8 no.1 id.011006|
|Date published||March 2013|
|Summary text/ abstract||The largest climate forcing is caused by well-mixed long-lived greenhouse gases. Here we illustrate trends of these gases and their climate forcings, and we discuss implications. We focus on quantities that are accurately measured, and we include comparison with fixed scenarios, which helps reduce common misimpressions about how climate forcings are changing. Annual fossil fuel CO₂ emissions have shot up in the past decade at about 3%/yr, double the rate of the prior three decades. The growth rate falls above the range of the IPCC (2001) 'Marker' scenarios, although emissions are still within the entire range considered by the IPCC SRES (2000). The surge in emissions is due to increased coal use, which now accounts for more than 40% of fossil fuel CO2 emissions.|
