Response to GliderGuider (Reply #9)

10. Carbon intensity most certainly IS a significant part of the issue.

It has a direct bearing on your remark in post 2, for example:
"What if the rising green sliver just lifts the blackness up instead of replacing it?"

You've basically postulated a false model based on a perceived direct link between historic growth in GDP and growth in emissions. As the graphs in my post show, that linkage most definitely isn't accurately represented by lumping it into a global average.

The significance can be confirmed easily by asking where the world would be were we still emitting at 1990 rates of emissions and today's GDP.

As to your remark about what pisses me off, you couldn't be further off unless you tried to draw it with one of your graphs. What I consider unacceptable is falsifying conclusions with deceptive data - and you are a legend when it comes to that.
