MIT’s Greenhouse Gas Roulette (survival or extinction!) Wheel


From “Eco Soundings: Take a Spin on MIT’s Greenhouse Gas Roulette Wheel”
The Guardian, John Vidal, March 31, 2009

“MIT’s Roulette wheel estimates the range of probability of potential global warming. Current ­favourites are 4-5C and 5-6C, at odds of 3-1, with 6-7C a decent outside bet at 7-1. And what are the chances of a rise of less than 3C, and with it a chance of ­something near a habitable planet? A shirt-losing 100-1. Meanwhile, the odds of a ruinous 7C or more by 2100 are just 11-1. Gulp.”
