THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Claim: 300,000 years required for climate to cool after CO2 emissions cease
The author of a new paper published in Nature Geoscience claims "we can imagine a scenario in which, after human CO2 emissions ceased, the planet's climate would start to recover and cool down. The bad news is that it's likely this would take around 300,000 years." This is absurd for several reasons, including, 1) the residence time and lifetime of CO2 in the atmosphere is only 5-10 years, 2) atmospheric CO2 is controlled by temperature, and 3) many other factors including solar activity and ocean oscillations are far more important determinants of planetary temperature than CO2.
