C&C the UK Climate Act & the Carbon Budget Analysis Tool (2010-2100)
 

In 2017, we are approaching the 'event horizon' of irreversibility with climate change. In December 2017, Jeremy Mathis, Director of NOAA's Arctic Programme said,
"the environment is changing so quickly . . . there is an almost runaway effect . . . we can't quite get a handle on what this new state is going to look like."


However, the UK Government refuses to align its carbon reduction target with the Paris Climate Agreement

CBAT - the Carbon Budget Accounting Tool.

Here are the four 'domains' of CBAT where domains 2, 3 & 4 automatically pick up the user-selected carbon-budget emissions in domain one.
On opening, the default setting is the contraction rate of global emissions - the global 'carbon-budget' - in the UK Climate Act.
It is 'cognitive-mapping', so the CBAT-user
can increase or decrease this 'carbon-budget' and separately, the potential for the consequential change rates arising: -

  • 'Domain One' - 'Contraction & Concentrations', with response arrays of 'climate feedbacks' & 'climate-effects' (temperature, sea level rise and ocean acidifcation)
  • 'Domain Two' - 'Contraction and Convergence' where regional shares converge on the international per capita average arising
  • 'Domain Three' - 'Contraction and Conversion' exploring the rate at which fossil fuel consumption needs to be replaced with renewable sources
  • 'Domain Four' - 'Climate Damages and Growth' exploring the rate of the climate-damage curves arising from different rates of carbon contraction

A description of CBAT by Plan-B was published thereafter; a technical note is here; Appreciation is here.
"Simple, robust, its insight into the problem of climate mitigation bears the hallmark of true genius." Dlugolecki.
