Wait what? It would Cost $100 Trillion to Reduce Global Warming Three Tenths of One Degree in 100 Years!

I think the ship has sailed on this whole thing.
The calculation comes from Danish statistician Bjorn Lomborg, the head of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, reports Climate Depot.
Lomborg states: “We will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature by the end of the century by a grand total of three tenths of one degree – the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years.”
He explained the calculation is based on the U.N.’s own climate prediction model.
The total is bigger than the world’s gross domestic product.
Those are mind-boggling numbers. Imagine how many people could be helped or fed with that amount? We could probably wipe out global poverty with a tenth of that huge figure.
