"In fact, only in the case of essentially complete elimination of emissions can the atmospheric concentration of CO2 ultimately be stabilized at a constant level."
(IPCC assessment 2007 FAQ 10.3)
scientifically impossible for today's catastrophic atmospheric carbon dioxide
concentration (395 ppm) to fall unless our carbon emissions stop, and we must get below 350 ppm.
"We should be talking about emissions targets, and the right emission target is zero."
(Ken Caldeira climate expert Stanford)
"I asked the top scientists on this several times: Do we really have to get down to near zero? Can't we just cut it in half or a quarter? And the answer is that until we get near to zero, the temperature will continue to rise." (Bill Gates)
can get us to 350 ppm CO2
can get CO2 emissions down to zero, and that would keep global warming below
1.5C. We must because the 2C target is certain planetary catastrophe.
The good news about climate change is only zero carbon

Zero carbon means zero CO2 emissions and zero black carbon emissions.
CO2 is the top global warming emission and black carbon (soot) is second.
CO2 is the top cause of global warming and the only cause of ocean acidification.
