I was having a discussion with Anders of the blog And Then There's Physics. He claims that the statement "that future anthropogenic emissions would need to be eliminated in order to stabilize global-mean temperatures" is true.
I'm challenging him to put his money where his mouth is. I bet him the equivalent of 30 U.S. dollars that I can honestly answer the following multiple choice question, and he cannot:
Which of the following statements must be true, in order for global temperatures to be stabilized:
1) Anthropogenic emissions must be eliminated.
2) If anthropogenic emissions are not eliminated, then we must somehow remove as much CO2 from the atmosphere, and sequester it somewhere, as we’re emitting into the atmosphere.
3) Both of the above.
My honest answer to this question is "#2."
If Anders can honestly answer this multiple choice question, I will give him $30.
