0.14 degrees of separation

Katrina, Rita, Global Warming, Kyoto, blah, blah, blah. In anticipation of the next hurricane and the next set of inanities from the MSM about Global Warming being the cause, we want to bookmark a quick fact. This via Dafydd ab Hugh at Captain’s Quarters:

According to Reason Magazine, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimates that if we do nothing, the rise in temperature over the next hundred years would average (among the various estimates) about 3.0°C. Full implementation of the Kyoto Protocols would reduce expected warming over the next century down to a mere 2.86°C; that is, Kyoto gives us a reduction in anticipated temperature increase of 0.14°C over 100 years.

Gee, that’s gotta be worth spending five or ten trillion dollars on.
