“During Cancun COP16 – calls for a return to WWII style rationing“. Anthony Watts loves to suggest that climate scientists want to install a World Government, tell Americans what to do, and make them live in caves. He finds an article in the Telegraph that lets him take this idea out for another ride around the block. Scientists want to start rationing! And Al Gore will be on the gas vouchers! Or something.
Hmmm. Dr. Kevin Anderson wrote an article in a special report by the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society that discusses the ineffectiveness of current Global Warming mitigation efforts, and the options for improving mitigation efforts.
From a mitigation perspective, the gap between the scientific and policy understanding of the challenge needs urgently to be addressed.
Where’s the “rationing”?

He doesn’t mention the reason. He doesn’t mention his, Kevin Anderson’s, paper about the consequenc the potential for a global temperature increase of four degrees and its implications

SINS OF OMISSION II………. Anthony neglects to include the ‘not so much’ from the article he excerpts. He stops just short of it.
